With its long arch rising 134 m (440 ft) above the glimmering blue waters of Sydney Harbour, the Sydney Harbour Bridge stands as the world's tallest steel-arch bridge. Nicknamed "The Coathanger" by locals, the bridge itself forms an impressive site with a giant steel arch extending from one massive granite-faced pylon to another. It connects downtown Sydney to the North Shore for cars, trains, bicycles, and pedestrians. When you cross it, you'll be rewarded with outstanding views of the Sydney skyline and Sydney Opera House. You can walk across the bridge for free or take the Bridge Climb to the top of the arch if you're feeling adventurous. Work out when and for how long to visit Sydney Harbour Bridge and other Sydney attractions using our handy Sydney road trip tool.

  • Probably as iconic as the Opera House that overlooks at it. Just walk down the promenade and enjoy both while thinking that you are visiting one of those iconic places worldwide.

  • Walking the length of the harbour bridge is a must if you are in Sydney
  • The view from the summit was amazing, you could see straight over the harbour and into the distance. The people there were amazing and very professional. Our climb leader was a wealth of information as we climbed the bridge in our group. I recommend
