About
Spanning the city center to the North Shore, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is a wide steel arch bridge known for its beauty as well as function, providing a crossing for cars, trains, bikes and pedestrians. While the more daring can do the BridgeClimb to the top of the structure, opened to traffic in 1932, anyone can enjoy a walk for free.

It doesn't take long to walk across the bridge...but the steps to the walkway can be challenging. Great views of the harbour.

What a disappointment
May 2021 • Couples
Been looking forward to walking across the bridge for some time but the noise of traffic and vehicle pollution and security guards smoking throughout really destroyed the experience. Pity as the views are terrific.

Not nice

It looks ok from far. If you walk on it, the noises and exhaust from vehicles make it unbearable. We left without walking the full distance.

Iconic bridge
May 2021 • Couples
The bridge is iconically Australian and absolutely worth visiting. There are some great viewing points of the bridge from both sides of the harbour. Personally, I liked the view from the northern side, near Luna Park, with the Opera House in the background.
We walked the bridge, both ways and whilst still enjoyable, it is noisier and has less vantage points (due the safety fencing) than many of the other iconic bridges of the world.

Not fun walking
May 2021 • Family
You can walk this bridge on pedestrian track. Not recommended. Noises and pollution, that will make walking across it cumbersome.

Not the most enjoyable location for views of Sydney Harbour
Apr. 2021
.
A walk across Sydney Harbour Bridge (not to be confused with the Climb up the arch) is possible, however not enjoyable unless comfortable with excessive noise and vehicle fumes.
Walkers are caged in by high, small grid fencing which curves over the footpath. It is impossible to get good photographs through the mesh and steel struts jut out from the bottom of the mesh. Vehicles thunder past close by on the same level as walkers. Anyone who has walked over Manhattan Bridge where vehicles are under that bridge, and the path has a more casual vibe for cyclists and pedestrians who can loiter and admire the views uncaged, will be disappointed if expecting a similar experience on this Sydney bridge.
The footpath on the South/City side begins near the Argyle Street Cut near the Glenmore Pub. To access the Northern side: from Milson Point walk uphill on Broughton Street,( the bridge will be on your left above you), cross Fitzroy Street and a little further on up Broughton Street, a glass encased lift to the bridge deck comes into view. Also a set of stairs.
The southern bridge Pylon and museum closed due to covid 19 at the time of writing $19 for Adults $12.50 for Seniors. The views from the Pylon may be better.

I last wrote a review in 2017 but saw it again in March this year and went to 3 Cumberland Street The Rocks where the bridge Climb was. All I got was a brochure as only open on the weekends. It is the tallest steel arch bridge 440 feet from top to water level and was the world's widest long span bridge at 160 feet until the construction of the Port Mann bridge in Vancouver completed in 2012. It is not only a road bridge but has trains go over it also
