Sydney Harbour Bridge

Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney, Tourism New South Wales

With almost every view in The Rocks dominated by its soaring arch, it’s hard to ignore the presence of Sydney’s magnificent harbour bridge. With its longest span at 503 metres, it was completed and opened to traffic in 1932.

One of the best views of Sydney can be had from the Pylon Lookout, which contains an excellent exhibition detailing the bridge’s history. The Sydney Harbour Bridge Visitor Centre also contains an exhibition and cinemas showing how the bridge was built (free entry). The same entrance leads to BridgeClimb Sydney, offering unique and unforgettable tours to the very top of the span.

3 Cumberland St; (02) 8274 7777; office open 8am–5pm Mon–Fri, 9am–5pm Sat–Sun.
