The harbour bridge climb in Sydney is touted as one of the unmissable things to do when one is visiting the city. However, this is an extremely expensive affair and will create a significant dent in the budget of any traveller.

A great $12 alternative is to climb the pylon lookout at the harbour bridge, It takes you to an elevation that is 75% of the way up the bridge and costs you a fraction of the bridge climb.

If you dont mind climbing a lot of stairs (you would need to do that on the bridge climb too) and are on a budget, this is a great workaround to doing the actual climb.

The view and history of the museum was fantastic. A great spot to watch the bridge climbers. We did not know you could even go up the pylon for this view so it was a wonderful surprise.

... and maybe more worth the price of it ? Had a great view over Sydney, learned some about its history and great monument to be in. I like to think of it as a reward, after the effort of finding it and climbing all the stairs.

Not quite as high up as the bridge walk, but still had very nice views. Also, a lot less expensive than the bridge climb. We went up on a cloudy, windy day, yet still enjoyed the views. Highly recommend it.

For about $15 you can climb the pylon stairs for an even higher perspective of Sydney Harbor and take photos like the ones you see in magazines. There are static displays that tell the history of the bridge.
