About BridgeClimb
See Sydney at its best - take the Climb of Your Life with BridgeClimb Sydney! With our Climb Leaders as your guide, you will suit-up in our specially designed outdoor gear and ascend the arches of the coathanger. From dawn until dusk, the view from the top is always different. Climbs are available at dawn (limited departures), during the day, twilight or night. Did you know there's more than one way to the top? choose between the original BridgeClimb, a 3.5h experience travelling on the upper arch, The BridgeClimb Express, which travels on the inner arch and bursts through to the summit from below in 2h 15min, or the BridgeClimb Sampler, a 90 minute experience that reaches a vantage point half way to the top. The BridgeClimb and BridgeClimb express are also offered in Mandarin. We also offer Special Event Climbs for some of Sydney's Festivals, such as Vivid Sydney or Australia day. Don’t miss out on this unforgettable, and uniquely “Sydney” experience!

High fitness level needed. The 4 ladders going straight up was a bit daunting. The practise one in the office where you can bale is easy - just shows you how to use the zip line. I am 70 and only by determination and my daughter and our guide Tanner did I make it. The walk up the arch was very strenuous. Personally I would never have done it knowing what I know now. It was very hard. Do your research.

I did the summit tour, and had an excellent guide, a Scotsman, who was incredibly funny and provided a well-narrated tour. I would highly recommend this activity during a Sydney visit. If you have normal fitness levels you might want to take the full bridge climb because a lot of the tour time is spent suiting up and receiving instructions, so as long as you are dressed, you might as well do the whole bridge. That is my one regret. But it was a gorgeous day, and the guide was great. And those who complain about not being able to take their own photos....HELLO...read the website. They are very clear about not being able to take any of your own equipment on the bridge. They have liability issues and they can't afford to have people dropping their personal effects on the bridge or off. Definitely a Sydney highlight!

A wonderful gift from my niece. It was the first time for all of us to do the bridge climb with 1002 steps. We were so fortunate to have beautiful weather & what an amazing back drop of the most beautiful harbour in the world. We were very lucky to have Pete as our guide. He was very knowledgeable, passionate, friendly, personable & an excellent photographer.👌👍💕🥰

I did the SYD Harbour Bridge Climb on April 30th 2022. Went to their website, bought the ticket, downloaded the health form (print and fill out), and then went to their HDQ at 3 Columbus St, near the CDB side of the Bridge. I was already well briefed on the fact that you CANNOT carry camera's, wear watches, rings, jewelry, etc, which I thought was very restrictive, UNTIL I figured out that there are good reasons for every rule that they require you to follow. Considering that this climb is wind, rain, or shine, the restrictions are reasonable, as you are standing and climbing above live auto traffic, and train traffic, and their liability would be tremendous if you dropped a cell phone or camera on the tracks or roadway below. I am generally "anti-the-rule-book" kind of person, but for this thrill, I set aside my own personal objections to "their" rules, and did what I was told. The whole event was very very well organized, and professionally run. My guide was Shannon, and she commanded 4 of us around and up/down the bridge. Cannot say enough about her professionalism, and enthusiam. Did the "Summit" climb. 3 hours. I'm (was) afraid of heights, so my challenges were numberous, yet in the end, I was walking across the top of the bridge, not hanging onto the handrails, and loving every minute of it. So much so that I went back for a second climb the next day. Please check each climbs "route", as some climbs stay on a catwalk "under the bridge" for some time, whereas the Summit climb, you are on the catwalk to the first tower, and then Up and Out you go onto the upper span in open air. I found the catwalk, "under" the bridge to be the most mentaly challenging. Walking in the open air on top of the bridge was not a challenge at all, 100% fun. Face your fear and you will be rewarded greatly ! I have traveled to Sydney for 20 years, and now regret that I did not climb every single trip I made there, it was that liberating and fun ! Highly recommend.
