Dawn Bridge Climb, & Pylon Lookout

Tuesday, October 21, 2003
The best view of Sydney Harbour is most definitely, hands-down, 100% tops ... from the Sydney Harbour Bridge!

Dawn Bridge Climb

Bridge Climb has been captivating Sydneysiders and visitors alike since its opening. And now they’re giving it a new twist with dawn climbs operating for a limited time over Summer.

Dawn Climbs were trialled last summer to an unprecedented response so this year they’ll be more opportunities for climbers to experience this spectacular event - the exquisite serenity and beauty of dawn over Sydney Harbour.

The exclusive Climbs at dawn are being offered to a maximum of 48 people per day, and Climbers will be the first people on the Bridge.

Pylon Lookout

The Sydney Harbour Bridge Pylon Lookout has recently undergone a facelift thanks to the new management of Bridge Climb. It’s well worth a visit for the lookout alone but as well as the 200 stairs to the Pylon Lookout, on the way up there are 3 levels of exhibits where you will discover the history and construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the men who built it, and the vision of JJC Bradfield, chief engineer. Displays on all levels, and a short documentary video, provide a unique insight into the past and present of Sydney's celebrated Harbour Bridge.

The Sydney Harbour Bridge is the world's largest (but not longest) steel arch bridge, and, in its beautiful harbour location, has become a renowned international symbol of Australia. The Bridge is 134 metres high, 502 metres long, 48.8 metres wide and weighs 52 800 tonnes. The Sydney Harbour Bridge was constructed between 1923 and 1932.
