Over 90 years old, Sydney Harbour Bridge is the world’s largest steel arch bridge.
Sydney Harbour Bridge stands 134 metres above the harbour, making it the largest steel arch bridge. The bridge took eight years to build and within the first six years the traffic could finally cross it. Two years later, it was officially completed in March 1932.
Climb the bridge
Climbing the Harbour Bridge is one of the most iconic activities you can do in Sydney. As you climb up, you’ll start to see all the city’s highlights like the beautiful blue harbour, the Opera House, the city skyline, and so much more.
See the Harbour Bridge from the sky
There are seaplanes and helicopters that give you a bird’s eye view of the Harbour Bridge! Fly up above and view the Harbour Bridge, the Opera House, the gorgeous blue harbour, and the city skyline.
Cross the bridge
The Harbour Bridge connects Sydney’s CBD to the North Shore. You can drive a car, walk, cycle, or catch the train to cross the bridge. The walk across the bridge can take around 15 to 30 minutes and you’ll see iconic views of the Opera House, The Rocks, and Fort Denison.
Go under the bridge
Catch a ferry and view the Harbour Bridge from below and even go underneath it. From Circular Quay, you can catch a ferry that takes you under the bridge and you will also see the Sydney Opera House! From the ferry, you may also see Manly, Watsons Bay or Taronga Zoo.
The Harbour Bridge sits above The Rocks which has plenty of restaurants, pubs, and cafes for delicious food and drinks. Some of the best places to go for a meal or a drink include The Squire’s Landing, Quay Restaurant, and Orient Hotel.
If you’re looking to do something, you can see the Museum of Contemporary Art for the art displays or check out Cadmans Cottage which is one of the oldest buildings in Australia. On a weekend you can wander through The Rocks Market.
