The Sydney Harbour Bridge is an iconic piece of Australian architectural history. Bringing the Northern & Eastern points of Sydney together, it's majestic reign over the Harbour ringings triumphant. It's uses are broad, from it's world renown firework displays, lights during Sydney festivals to millions transported via car, train & foot. A world class view from the top, that even, Sydneysiders would never take for granted. Truely a remarkable Australian landmark.June 3, 2012 Like Add a Comment
Sydney's harbour area stuns all of the senses with not only the famous bridge and opera house but the myriad of sea going vessels, bright coloured ferries, buskers and bustle. So much to do! Climbers of the "Sydney Harbour Bridge" (nicknamed The Coathanger) enjoy a full visual feast and experience, taking in a birds eye view over and beyond the next bays, Circular Quay, Rocks area, North Heads and even toward Manly. Listed as an extremely worthwhile walk, this climb has a waiting list. (Visible in this photograph are a team way high up on the first quarter of the walk.) Exhilarating! www.bridgeclimb.com to book online or gift a voucher. Circa 1932. Bridge Climbs since 1998. Squiz on google earth...May 26, 2012 Like Add a Comment
The ant-like figures barely visible on the top of the bridge are those brave souls who have conquered the experience that is the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb. Although initial thinking would assume it’s not for the faint-hearted or the fear-of-heighters, this turns out not to be true. You’ll be safely attached to a static line so that as you walk along the mesh walkways, climb the 455 steps on the arches, step over, duck under and squeeeze through girders, you’ll be safe as houses. You can even get married at the top and you can use a special secure ring device so that while exchanging rings, they won’t fall the 440 feet into the water below.April 25, 2012 Like Add a Comment
