We went up to the pylon and the views were amazing. Definitely worthwhile, and for a fraction of the price of the bridge climb. This was I think around $30 for 2 people, as opposed to $550 for 2 people on the bridge climb

Well worth the $15 to go to the top to get amazing photos with the bridge and opera House. Fascinating to learn about the history of the bridge construction and the people who designed and built it.

This lookout should be a no brainer when visiting Sydney. It's quite affordable and offers spectacular views of the harbor, bridge, and city. It's a little tricky getting up to the bridge from the harbor area, but it's worth it. Tickets can be bought on...More
