The Express Climb


The Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb starts from 3 Cumberland St, The Rocks. Please be at the starting point 15 minutes before your climb starts.

Your Bridge Adventure begins from the Climb Base situated within the original historic architecture of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. You will meet your climb leader, who will provide you with an all-in-one BridgeSuit, a safety harness and any other protective gear you may need during your climb.

Your Climb Leader will not only prepare you for the climb and give you safety instructions, but will also share with you the history of the Bridge.

Moving forward, you will pass through a purpose built tunnel through the original foundations of the Sydney Harbour Bridge before stepping out onto the famous bridge to start your climb.

Accompanied by your climb leader, step by step ascend the arches of the Bridge. Weave through catwalks, climb up ladders and, finally over the fabulous arch to get a bird’s eye view of Sydney. Surrounded by the hum and buzz of Sydney’s traffic and with the summit in your sight, your journey continues along the Bridge’s outer arch on the Opera House side until you hit the top.

Absorb 360 degree panoramic views of Sydney from the summit which is 134m above sea level. The shimmering blue waters of the Harbour and the glittering windows of the skyline are stunning.

Once you reach the top, get ready for a Climb Group photograph taken by your climb leader which will capture your climb experience forever.

After a summit celebration with your group, you cross the spine of the Bridge to the Darling Harbour side to make your descent to the Climb Base.
