“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

Before we went to Sydney a friend told me to do this instead of the Bridge climb as it is so much cheaper and the views just as spectacular. I was so glad I took her advice! Only $13 entry fee, and they also kindly gave my daughter a student discount of $5 as she had her UK Uni card with her ( I was impressed with this as lots of other places we visited in Australia refused to take a 'foreign' Uni card). The views of Sydney were amazing and you could spend as long as you liked at the top. We then walked across the bridge (twice) and there were some great views of the Opera House from the other side. Loved the whole thing!

“excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014

For $13.00 per adult (not sure of children's cost) money well spent. A nice climb up stairs to the top with spectacular views of the bridge and Sydney itself. we spent probably an hour at the top just wondering around, just watching the ever changing scenery below and in the harbor itself. It provides a great deal of history on the bridge how it was built and designed etc. Easy walk from the Rocks well sign posted. This is our second visit and we will do it again the next time we are in Sydney. this is a cheaper way of seeing the bridge, but just as spectacular.

Totally well worth a visit. Only $13 and you have a very informative visit about the Harbour Bridge's history as well as an amazing 360 degree view of Sydney Harbour.

“Budget alternative to bridge climb”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

You will come across the entrance to this small lookout and museum as you walk across the bridge eastern pedestrian walkway. It is a cheap entry price. I think $10 last time. There is a small museum and a theatre with short film about the history and building of the bridge. Then there is the outdoor lookout on top. It is a sensational view of the city and harbour and the bridge itself. There is high walls so not scary for height effected people.

“Very informative”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

No need to do the bridge climb when you can save money and come here. Lots and lots of information about the bridges history. People worked very hard to build this amazing bridge and some fell to their deaths. Fantastic view.
