Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney

#Bridge, #Landmark, #Must See
With its long arch rising 134 m (440 ft) above the glimmering blue waters of Sydney Harbour, the Sydney Harbour Bridge stands as the world's tallest steel-arch bridge. Nicknamed "The Coathanger" by locals, the bridge itself forms an impressive site with a giant steel arch extending from one massive granite-faced pylon to another. It connects downtown Sydney to the North Shore for cars, trains, bicycles, and pedestrians. When you cross it, you'll be rewarded with outstanding views of the Sydney skyline and Sydney Opera House. You can walk across the bridge for free or take the Bridge Climb to the top of the arch if you're feeling adventurous.

  • Had considered doing the bridge climb but didn’t have time so just walked over it from one side to the other. You get a great view. It’s all caged in for safety so photos aren’t great. Looks like you’...  more »

  • Lost count the amount if times I have walked across the Bridge. I have climbed it twice and both experiences were amazing. It has to be one of the most iconic bridges on the globe. Such an enormous achievement for it time. Checking it out from a boat of ferry is a fantastic way to view it
  • Oh Sydney! No clue why you’ve been declared THE most beautiful harbour on this Planet. You really are. I got goosebumps all over my body when I think about you. I’m not faking it, it’s true! You are something that every person on this Planet should live to experience happiness. You have it all: beautiful, huge, green national parks, crystal clear water, unreal wildlife, friendly people – of course Australians are friendly…they are living THE LIFE: no stress, no drama, no bad vibes – amazing city skyline, nice weather. YOU ARE LOVE. I LOVE YOU SYDNEY. Thanks for letting me know HAPPINESS is actually real.
  • Along with the Opera House, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of Australia's most famous tourist attractions. Affectionately called "the Coathanger," this impressive feat of construction is the largest steel arch bridge in the world. It was completed in 1932, 40 years before the Sydney Opera House. Rising 134 meters above the harbor, the bridge spans 500 meters, connecting Sydney's North Shore to the central business district. In addition to the pedestrian path, two railway lines extend over the bridge, as well as eight lanes for road traffic, and the direction of each lane can be switched to accommodate traffic flow
  • Must walk across the bridge over Sydney Harbor for great views of the city and photo ops of the Opera House. We started at the Observatory and ended on other side where there are many trendy pubs(hotels). For the adventurous, you can climb to the suspension cables, tethered of course.
  • Beautiful place, attracting activity. There is always something to do or to see the, especially for Vivid SYDNEY is the best time to go and visit. If you do a cruise trip you will have the best view of the bridge or also together with Opera House. Whatever check it out, right spot for everyone
