Latching on in the Climb Base below the Bradfield Highway, you will walk on catwalks below the road-deck until you reach the South-East Pylon. Here you will ascend 4 ladders to the start of the upper arch, surrounded by the hum and buzz of Sydney’s traffic. With the summit in your sight, your journey continues along the Bridge’s outer arch on the Opera House side until you hit the top. After a summit celebration with your group, you cross the spine of the Bridge to the Darling Harbour side to make your descent to our Climb Base. This Climb departs from early morning to late afternoon (after “dawn” and before “twilight”), exposing the hum and buzz of the city in full swing.
This Climb departs as the day closes. Get the best of both worlds as you soak up the day’s sunset while the moon takes its nightshift. All twilight Climbs experience the sunset on the Bridge (weather permitting).
3:00 - 4:00 PM
This Climb departs after the sun has set (after “twilight”), introducing the city alight and sparkling under a blanket of darkness.
4:00 - 5:00 PM or 5:00 - 6:00 PM

Climb to the arched peak of the Sydney Harbour Bridge for unforgettable panoramic views of the city skyline and harbour. With a professional climber to lead the way, scale catwalks and ladders to reach the 440-foot (134-m) top and soak up bird's-eye views of the Sydney Opera House and beyond.
