No visit to Sydney is compete without seeing the bridge--it's such an icon--but it is surprising how unfriendly and unpleasant that it feels to walk over the bridge. Unlike my 'home bridge' (the Golden Gate, another icon), the pedestrian pathway all along the water's edge isn't just a railing--it's a 10 foot (3 meter) high fence topped with barbed wire. This is in addition to police officers stationed all along it about every few hundred yards. It felt like a prison. You could only take pictures through a little 8 inch high gap in the railing and fencing. One can pay $$$ to climb the bridge, but this is not an option for families with younger children, and walking to the top of the pylon--apparently hundreds of steps and also $$--is also not really a reasonable option with younger kids. The bridge should be able to be enjoyed by all, not just enjoyed as money-making venture.
