I haven’t climbed the Harbour Bridge although I think it could be a nice thing to do at sunrise. When we were in Sydney we went to the top of the pylon which is still pretty high, only 200 steps and approximately $280 cheaper.
It was damp and windy so I wouldn’t have enjoyed a bridge climb that day at all.
It’s a pretty fair walk up there – stairs all the way.
You can walk all the way around the pylon. You can see the traffic coming in and out, it was quiet that afternoon.
You can see the Opera House
You can see the Royal Botanic Gardens there behind the Opera House, they go all the way around that next point.
You can see where the Governor General hangs out when she’s in Sydney
You can see Pinchgut. Thats the little Island there – they used to send convicts there as punishment. They started building a fort there but it was never finished and now National Parks owns it and it’s a museum and tourist attraction now and you can hire it for weddings or parties.
And you can see the city.
And then you can walk the 200 steps back down again.
