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.

  • This place deserves to be the world wonder. So beautiful. It is much bigger than the original bridge in New York - the Hell Gate. All tourists should try to walk across it. So beautiful.
  • Take time to enjoy the history, the culture and even the infrastructure of this magnificent bridge. Ride across it, drive it, take a train- but the next way across is by foot! A real experience that should be enjoyed for sure.
