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. Work out when and for how long to visit Sydney Harbour Bridge and other Sydney attractions using our handy Sydney road trip tool.

  • This bridge is not the best bridge I’ve ever seen but it is interesting. We not only got good views from the harbor during the day and at night, we rode bikes over it. You can walk over the bridge.....  more

  • It's a superb walk across the bridge. Loved it. Awesome views and the bridge is bigger than you think. Probably take around 20 minutes to walk across and take some photos

  • A world 🌎 Heritage landmark bridge. The most attraction of Sydney is the Harbour bridge. It was an amazing experience seeing a bridge on a ferry or cruise. It looks more beautiful after sunset. Luna park is just northern side. I recommend it and will definitely be doing it again. Fantastic time & awesome 🌅 views.
  • Spectacular as it is. Both side of the bridge have a good picnic areas. Nice view both day and night. You also can get a train or boat to north side which will cross the bridge so you can see a good view as well.
