About BridgeClimb
See Sydney at its best - take the Climb of Your Life with BridgeClimb Sydney! With our Climb Leaders as your guide, you will suit-up in our specially designed outdoor gear and ascend the arches of the coathanger. From dawn until dusk, the view from the top is always different. Climbs are available at dawn (limited departures), during the day, twilight or night. Did you know there's more than one way to the top? choose between the original BridgeClimb, a 3.5h experience travelling on the upper arch, The BridgeClimb Express, which travels on the inner arch and bursts through to the summit from below in 2h 15min, or the BridgeClimb Sampler, a 90 minute experience that reaches a vantage point half way to the top. The BridgeClimb and BridgeClimb express are also offered in Mandarin. We also offer Special Event Climbs for some of Sydney's Festivals, such as Vivid Sydney or Australia day. Don’t miss out on this unforgettable, and uniquely “Sydney” experience!

We were booked for a bridge climb in April of this year - and guess what, as you know, every travel plan had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. We live literally half way across the world. This was to have been the trip of a lifetime - we had made plans a few years in advance and there is no way we will be able to ever make this trip due to our advancing age and family situation. Bridge Climb REFUSES to refund our money! $675.95 Australian Dollars - gone forever. They are giving us a CREDIT for a new climb and we have 3 years to use it. As I said, there is zero way we will be able to use this credit. Literally every single company we dealt with for our "trip of a lifetime", gave us our cash back - cash, not a credit for us to use another time. All companies except BridgeClimb, understand the nature of the pandemic crisis and how a vacation cannot be easily rescheduled - we told them all of our circumstances, etc, we went to the ACCC and the NSW Fair Trading, lodging complaints. But too bad for us - no money - our cash will forever remain in the deep pockets of Sydney BridgeClimb - a company that cares NOTHING for their customers.

One of the best things I’ve ever done! The staff are incredible and they make the bridge climb so enjoyable. They have so much knowledge not only about the bridge but about the harbour too. I was really scared at first but the staff were so reassuring and kind they kept me going. If you do get jelly legged they have staff at a certain point ready to take you back which is nice to know.i honestly cannot recommend this enough - you won’t regret it!

We did the 3.5 hr bridge climb mid-morning, when there was some cloud cover. We experienced great views of Sydneys superb harbour during our organised climb. We felt that the safety of ourselves and the others of our group was paramount during our climb, which we thoroughly enjoyed. Yes the climb could be considered by some as expensive, but felt it was money well spent for what we experienced. Photo's taken by staff members were a touch steep in price, but it was a one off and there is no pressure to buy. Thanks Kim for an excellent presentation

I was very generously gifted the Sydney BridgeClimb experience as a gift for my 30th birthday. I could not tell you how excited, admittedly, a little nervous I was! My partner & I were originally booked on a morning climb last weekend, when it rained for three days straight. We called up to ask if there was any possibility of us changing the climb to the weekend just gone. On the phone, the staff were incredibly accomodating. The young lady was happy to swap us onto the new date and time no problem, we changed to a 3:15 twilight climb, stress free. Collecting our tickets was quick and efficient. At 3:15 on the dot, our guide came to collect us. This is when we met the wonderful Steve. Steve was the friendliest, smiliest & most welcoming guide. A teacher before his retirement, Steve makes all of the instructions very easy to understand. He is patient and clear, ensuring everyone is fully equipped for the climb and has all of their gear safely attached. Steve really takes the time to get to know each climber on an individual basis, he will then refer to someone in the group, for example, I am from the North East of England and the steel on the Harbour Bridge came from Middlesborough-so Steve had made a point of hailing me Queen of the Bridge. Steve's genuine passion for his job, for the bridge, for the people is so endearing and electric, he had put a smile on all of our faces for the rest of the night. He gave us all shivers when he told us about the day the opera house opened, witnessing it as a young boy and how it still, many years later ( sorry Steve) is fresh in his mind! Steve also told us how special it was that now we have climbed the bridge, every New Years Eve, we will have very exclusive bragging rights-able to say when we see the fireworks exploding, "I've been up there". Finally, Steve had the fellow climbers sing Happy Birthday to me at the top of the bridge and I was fighting back tears. I cannot rate this experience highly enough nor can I commend Steve more. What a bloody ripper of a day! God bless you sir.

The climb was amazing - not too difficult apart from the steep ladders. We were most impressed by how the whole event was so well run. Their attention to detail is brilliant. Our climb leader, Alex, was full of great information and made us all feel welcome.
