Yeah, you read that right. It’s not often we get to scale up the very landmark we ventured out to see, but nothing is impossible in the land down under! Scaling the Sydney Harbour Bridge is definitely one adventure you have to include on your trip to Australia if you want to take your vacation to new heights (yes, pun definitely intended).
If you’re curious to learn about this fun little activity, read on! Here are a few things you might be interested to learn about one of the country’s most famous tourist spots before you take your first step to the top.
You’re Up For A Lengthy Ascent
Make sure you have a couple of hours to spare because this climb is going to be a lengthy one! It takes approximately about 1,332 steps to reach the top, after all. You do still have the option to pick which type of climb you want to embark on, with varying time durations starting from one and a half hours to as long as three hours. Pick the BridgeClimb Sampler option if you wanna take it easy. If you’re up for a bit of challenge, the two-and-a-half-hour BridgeClimb Express is the one for you. And if you want the ultimate Harbour Bridge hike, go for the three-hour BridgeClimb!
You Can Take The Climb At Any Time Of The Day
Whether you’re a morning, afternoon, night, or right-before-the-break-of-dawn person, you’ll definitely get the chance to experience this fun hike on your favorite part of the day! The climb has different session periods to choose from. Pick between the Dawn, Daytime, Twilight, or Night sessions! Expect to see the sunrise on the Dawn Session, or witness the city at its most calm during the Twilight session. Whichever session you decide to take, you’ll be sure to get a unique, beautiful, and unforgettable experience.
Expect Thrills With Every Step
Scaling up a metal bridge isn’t an activity for the faint of heart, and this climb makes sure you feel the adrenaline rush at full force the entire time. Reaching heights as high as 130 meters above the ground can leave even the bravest people trembling. But don’t worry because they take safety very seriously! Be geared up from head to toe with the safety equipment they provide. Feel safe with their expert guides who will make sure you reach the top without any issues.
The View From Above Is None Like You’ve Ever Seen
Sure, can probably get 360° views from the Sydney Tower Eye, but I bet it won’t come close to the excitement you get from seeing attractions like the Sydney Opera House with strong winds breezing through your body! The view from the top of the bridge is surely one-of-a-kind and something you can’t ever replicate even from a higher vantage point.
But don’t take out word for it, find out if these things hold true yourself! Take the climb up this iconic Sydney landmark, and book tickets for you and your friends with KKday!
