This post is not for the faint of heart. The Sydney Harbor Bridge is easily the second most recognizable landmark in Sydney, right behind the Opera House. It stands a formidable 130m+ above sea level and connects the central business district with North Sydney; the 8-lane steel beast is over 1/2km in length and is a vital artery to the area.
Imagine climbing this freaking gigantic bridge; you’re ascending to a height of more than 130m above the harbor and roadways below, on a measly 1/2m steel beam.
No pictures do the size and scale of this bridge justice; the only thing that comes close is my drone footage in the video below.
Climbing the Harbor Bridge is one of the most spectacular things you can do in New South Wales. It takes decent physical strength and takes an astonishing 3 hours from start to finish.
