Sydney Harbour Bridge

Quick facts

The Sydney Harbour Bridge, the world’s largest steel arch bridge, is an architectural landmark that spans one of the Earth’s finest natural harbors. Opened in 1932, it is lovingly nicknamed the Coathanger (due to its shape). For amazing views, you can walk and bike across the bridge and climb up to the top.

The eastern side of the bridge is where you’ll find the bridge walk. The stairs leading to the bridge walk may be found on Cumberland Street in the historic Rocks, near the pedestrian crossing beside the Australian Heritage Hotel. The south-eastern Pylon Lookout, located at the end of the trail, provides a beautiful view.

The bridge’s western side has a bike path. Near the Sydney Observatory, a stunning heritage-listed building with telescopes for stargazing, is a cycleway you may get on and off at. For guided trips, join Sydney Bike Tours, Bonza Bike Tours, or Bikebuffs, which offer bicycle rentals and tours.

In order to have a life-changing experience, you should climb the Sydney Bridge with BridgeClimb Sydney. You’ll see Sydney from every angle. BridgeClimb is located on Cumberland Street, near a colonial artillery battery at Dawes Point (Ta-Ra) Park and where the road turns under the bridge.

A ferry ride across the bridge is an unforgettable opportunity to take in the sights. To get to Taronga Zoo, Manly or Watsons Bay, take a ferry from Circular Quay, which will take you under the bridge and past the Sydney Opera House. Travel to Barangaroo, Darling Harbour, Cockatoo Island and Parramatta by gliding beneath the bridge.
