“Great Views”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

Great harbour views at a fraction of the price of the Bridgeclimb, so great for families. There is also just enough history for interest. The only drawback is if you can't handle steps.

“Excellent value”
Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

This is an excellent way to see the city at a fraction of the cost of the bridge climb. 200 stairs with a few places to stop and a water fountain. The views are outstanding although it is quite a small viewing area at the top. Very good value at just $13. Many thanks to Bridgeclimb staff for complimentary tickets as my daughter was too young to climb the bridge with me- very nice gesture

“What a great find”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

I never knew this existed but a google search found this gem of a tourist thing to do in Sydney. The Bridge climb is $258 this was $13 and we climbed 200 steps up the Pylon with historical info all the way up to the top where we had great views of the harbour!!

“Nice compliment to the bridge climb”
Reviewed 20 August 2014

We got the free passes as part of the climb and decided to check it out after we returned to Sydney from Cairns. The views are pretty good and you can linger as long as you want on the top viewing deck which offers great panoramic views around the harbor. The museum gives great background history of the bridge and offers more details than our bridge climb guide (or maybe we just got distracted by the awesome views during the climb?). The climb is an adventure in itself with higher views of the harbor and closed-up looks of the bridge. But this is a great compliment to the climb and a more relaxed way to get the views.

“Great views across the rooftops of Glasgow”
Reviewed 19 August 2014

Great views across the bridge and over the opera house. We got free entry with the bridge climb ticket as they are run by the same company.
