Your BridgeClimb experience starts at the Sydney Harbour Bridge Visitors Centre where you meet your guide, receive a comprehensive safety briefing and put on the provided BridgeSuit, a specially designed coverall worn over your clothing.

When you’re ready, follow your expert Climb Leader through a purpose-built tunnel that leads to the bridge. Securely clipped into a safety wire, start to climb the steady incline up the arches of the bridge, traversing catwalks and ladders all the way to the 440-foot (134-meter) summit. At the top, stop to admire panoramic views of Sydney and its surroundings. To the east you can see the sails of the Sydney Opera House and to the west the majestic Blue Mountains are visible in the distance (on a clear day).

Throughout your tour, you can hear your guide via provided headsets. Listen to informative commentary and fun stories about the history of Sydney and the bridge and receive plenty of encouragement during your climb. Your guide stops at scenic points along the way so that you can take in the sights.

The 3.5-hour BridgeClimb is suitable for people with a moderate level of fitness. The 2.5-hour Express Climb proceeds at a faster pace with fewer stops. The 1.5-hour Sampler Climb goes to a halfway point inside the inner arch before returning to the ground. Select a VIVID Climb available during festival dates only.

After all tours, receive a complimentary group photo, commemorative certificate and BridgeClimb cap. Please see more details about each tour under Itinerary below.

We are a couple in our late 60's from the UK
We were very fortunate and picked the perfect day for our climb. It wasn't too hot, or windy, it didn't rain and we were lucky enough to see the sunset as well as Sydney by night making it a spectacular experience.
All the staff were friendly and helpful, though it was a bit unfortunate that the battery went on the camera leaving us with around a 20 to 30 minute wait for a new one to be sourced.
An added bonus was the FREE tickets for the PYLON! This gave us the chance to see Sydney in the daylight too!
IMPORTANT TIP - register early (they don't seem to mind) if you are on a time limited visit or are going onto the bridge later in the day as this will give you a chance to use your Pylon tickets before the climb.

This was a great experience! The tour guides provided instructions and information about the bridge. Viator was a great way to book the tour because they have a 24 hour cancellation policy, which is not available when booking directly with the Bridge Climb. Also, when I arrived, I was able to move to an earlier available time slot to avoid the afternoon's projected rain.

Great experience and maybe the highlight of our vacation! We did the twilight climb and were able to see the sunset and night views. Other than the ladder sections, the climb is not too bad. The guides are FANTASTIC and really ensure everyone has a great time!

This was one of the most enjoyable, exciting tours I have ever taken. I chose the 'advanced' climb. The Guide was very knowledgeable. I'm not comfortable with heights but wanted the challenge. The Guide made it easy and i'm very happy i did it. Highly recommend.

Ben was a fantastic guide! The climb was relaxed and stress free. We had lots of time to look around at various points on the hike. The photos were great and we met some really cool people during the adventure. It was a bucket list item and we are so thankful that we went on this tour!!! Highly highly recommend this excursion!

The bridge climb is a must when you are in Sydney. The tour group was extremely organized and safety conscious. I'm not the most comfortable with heights and I felt incredibly safe and secure during the tour. The tour included photographs and a video. The tour guide was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. My wife and I had a blast.

We did the sampler climb and are so glad we did. We was half way up and over the bridge, took about 2 hours in total. Our tour guide was great, very friendly and helpful. Lots of stairs so be prepared!
