When to Climb
Exclusive dawn climbs are offered on the first Saturday of each month. The city is calm, and the Harbour glistens as the sun begins to rise.
Climb during the day, and see the city in full swing buzzing below you. On a clear day, you’ll see views that stretch from the Pacific Ocean to the Blue Mountains.
Start your climb in the late afternoon, and arrive at the summit as the sun begins to set. As you arrive on the western side of the bridge, the sun will have reached the horizon.
Emerge onto the eastern arch as the sun falls to the horizon. As you descend from the bridge, you’ll experience the lightshow of Sydney at night.
The light of your headlamp guides you on the NightClimb when the bridge has a mysterious feel and the lights of the city twinkle below you. The bridge lights illuminating the structure against huge shadows.
The entire experience lasts three-and-a-half hours. After you check in, the first hour consists of a comprehensive briefing and safety demonstrations. The two types of climbs include:
The Bridge Climb
Climb the upper span of the arch along the catwalks and ladders to the summit. The incline is steady.
The Discover Climb
Climb the stairs and catwalks, wind through inner components, and touch the raw steel rivets.
