“Should not be missed”

Pylon Lookout at Sydney Harbour Bridge
Ranked #22 of 566 things to do in Sydney
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2018

The pylon lookout is the alternative if you are not willing to make the bridge climb. It is easy to reach, not too strenous even for untrained people and offers a very nice view over the bridge.

This was a great cheap alternative to the climb, $50 for a family of four. Views were amazing and it was interesting to read about when the bridge was built.

TripAdvisor would lead you to believe you should pay for a Bridge climb tour. The pylon lookout was excellent and far less time consuming and far less expensive.

If you're looking for an alternate (may not equal a bridge climb), head to the pylon tower. The entry fee is $15 per person and only 200 steps to the top. Great city views. You can even watch people do the bridge climb.

i have done both the pylon and bridge climb, i came back for a 2nd trip to sydney and knew the best way to get views of the harbour and sydney was the pylon. a lot of steps to climb but worth while.
