Sydney Harbour Bridge
Sydney Harbour Bridge Review
There are several ways to experience the bridge and its spectacular views. The third option is to walk to the midpoint of the bridge to take in the views free of charge, but be sure to take the eastern footpath, which overlooks the Sydney Opera House. Access is via the stairs on Cumberland Street, close to the Shangri-La Hotel.
South East Pylon. To reach this city-side pylon of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, walk along the bridge's pedestrian pathway. Acess is from stairs on Cumberland Street, The Rocks (near Bridgeclimb). This structure houses a display on the bridge's construction, and you can climb the 200 steps to the lookout and its unbeatable harbor panorama. Cumberland St., The Rocks, Sydney, NSW. 02/9240–1100. www.pylonlookout.com.au. A$11. Daily 10–5.
BridgeClimb tour. Another (more expensive) option—not for those afraid of heights—is the BridgeClimb tour, which takes you on a guided walking tour to the very top of Harbour Bridge, 439 feet above sea level. The cost is A$198 per person for a night climb midweek and A$235 for a day climb, with slightly higher prices on weekends. Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Rocks, Sydney, NSW. 02/8274–7777. www.bridgeclimb.com.
