This is a cheaper alternative to the Harbour Bridge Climb and affords similar views. You climb up stairs inside one of the stone Pylons on the Sydney side of the Bridge. There are "only" 200 steps and these are staged so you can easily pause...More

The view from the lookout was magnificent and overlooks the bridge and the Sydney Opera House from different positions around the perimeter. Ask for the elderly price if you are above 60. Well worth the money to know about the history with a short video...More

Get spectacular views at your own pace without the requirement to wear a jumpsuit and be tied to the bridge

To get there you`ll need to walk a little bit and then go up on the stairs, but the views are worth it. You need to pay a fee to go up but it`s not expensive.

This is a great way to experience the Harbour Bridge. You get a brilliant view, lots of interesting information about the Bridge and its construction that you can process at your own pace and its very cheap.

This is an affordable option for the thrill seekers - giving you a fantastic view of the city. Best time to go is early in the morning (Sunrise) and Sunset.

Great for those who wants to enjoy the view of Sydney but not willing to spend 200 for the bridge climb! Went there at 4:30 for the sunset and it was beautiful. It closes at 5 pm though.

We were not prepared to pay a fortune and I don't think my wife would do the walk, so I asked a taxi driver and he told us about this pylon we could walk up. What a great find. It's almost as high as the...More

Hiya, You are enclosed in the pylon whilst you are climbing the stairs - you step out to enjoy the views xx
Hello, Is the 200 step climb continuous or are there multiple floors that you can stop at on your way to the top? Just wondering if my 86 yr old father could do this.
