  • Overview & Itinerary


    The Sydney Harbour Bridge is a world-renowned symbol of Australia. It is positioned across the stunning natural harbour with amazing views, making it the most photographed feature of the city.

    This economical tour is suitable for people who are wary of heights or don’t want to go all the way up to the summit. In just 1.5 hours, you can ascend the inner arch of the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge to a spectacular vantage point halfway to the top. Led by a trained guide, you will have a unique experience and amazing views to enjoy as you climb the iconic landmark.

    Every ticket to the Halfway Climb includes a climb group photograph and a Bridge Climb cap. This is one of the most popular things to do in Sydney and places are limited – book ahead to avoid disappointment. Once in a lifetime experience.


    Your Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb commences from 3 Cumberland Street, The Rocks. Please be at the starting point 20 minutes before your climb starts.

    Head to the Climb Base located within the original historic architecture of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Wear your Bridge suit gear and pick your harness and other protective gear to prepare yourself for the climb.

    After safety briefing, accompanied by a climb leader you will proceed for your climb.

    This “halfway” climb is an exciting 1.5 hour Harbour Bridge experience specially designed for people who have height concerns.

    Venture along catwalks past the South-East Pylon, directly over Sydney Harbour. Commence your ascent to the halfway point on the inner arch on the Opera House side. As you cross over, to the Darling Harbour side of the Bridge, pause for a group photo at a unique vantage point within the Bridge. From here, you make a quick descent to the Climb Base.
