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.

Sydney Harbour Bridge is more than a Sydney landmark, it's an Australian icon. I always get a catch in my breath when I see it. All he hundred of visits I have made to Sydney I never fail ti admire it. The bridge climb is amazing. Believe me - I am terrified of heights and when friends thought it'd be... More

There are tours where you can walk the bridge while being harnessed. You can walk below the bridge along the river with historical markers and shops nearby.

Never actually walked on the bridge by foot, but crossed it many times on a bus and I think that it is mindblowing how much actually fits on the bridge. There is a lane for cars, a lane for pedestrians, a lane for cyclists and a lane for trains, and everything was so organised and electrically controlled with no partition... More

Fabulous experience. Only part of the climb which could be a little difficult are the ladders but just take it at your own pace. Well worth the small effort.

Do you want an unforgettable experience? Are you afraid of heights? I can assure you that if you answer "Yes!" to either or both those questions, there's hope for you! Sorry I can't subsidise the cost of your climb, but from one who doesn't enjoy heights, this was a completely exhilarating experience. Look at the bridge, walk across the bridge's... More

We walked from Milsons Point and up over the Bridge Walkway which is open to the public. Amazing views, excellent having security people placed along the walk every couple hundred metres. Felt safe even though I personally don't enjoy heights. Make sure you wear a hat and take some water with you on your walk. And wear appropriate walking shoes.

Outstanding walk across Harbor Bridge. Just heads up, if you have kids and strollers. There is no lift to take you up to the bridge. You have to carry the stroller and car seat if you have one. Other than that its great walk, great view.
