What to Expect
Make your own way to the Sydney Harbour Bridge Visitor Centre, arriving at the time you selected when booking your tour. Upon arrival you’ll receive a thorough safety briefing, and get suited up and clipped onto a safety wire.
Once you’re ready, you’ll follow your guide along your chosen route, stopping at scenic points along the way. Depending on the option you chose, you’ll either ascend to a halfway point inside the bridge's inner arch or climb to the summit at a faster pace.
After ample photo opportunities and time to take in the incredible views, you’ll descend and receive a commemorative certificate and group photograph.
Morning or Afternoon BridgeClimb (3.5 Hours):
This is the original Climb that takes the outer archways of the bridge all the way to the top. Climb up a steady incline and traverse catwalks and ladders, then admire panoramic views of Sydney Harbour and Sydney Opera House. Look out at the Blue Mountains, visible in the distance on a clear day. Choose from a morning or afternoon departure and see the city in full swing. 

Dawn BridgeClimb (3.5 Hours):
Take in the breathtaking views of the sun rising over Sydney on a dawn BridgeClimb. Join the first group to climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge for the day, departing in the early morning before sunrise. Exact departure time is determined by timing of the sunrise. Receive two additional complimentary photos on this tour.

Twilight BridgeClimb (3.5 Hours):
Get the best of both day and night on this tour, which departs just before sundown. Take in a spectacular sunset and watch the moon and stars appear during your climb. Exact departure time depends on the timing of the sunset.

Night BridgeClimb (3.5 Hours):
Depart after the sun has set on this 3.5-hour tour to the summit. See the sparkling lights of the city and Sydney Harbour below while the stars and moon shimmer above.

BridgeClimb Express (2.25 Hours):
If you don’t have a lot of time or simply prefer a faster route to the summit, the BridgeClimb Express provides an incredible experience. Unlike the longer tour that walks along the outer arches, your route goes through the heart of the structure, which provides a different perspective. With this option, there are fewer steps to climb, fewer stops and the ascent to the top moves at a faster pace. Perfect for those with a higher level of fitness who are looking for an energetic experience within a shorter time frame.

BridgeClimb Sampler (1.5 Hours):
The Sampler is ideal if you have limited time, would like a more economical option or have concerns about heights and prefer not to go to the very top. The climb follows walkways on the inner parts of the bridge, which some people prefer to the exterior walkways used for other climbs. Reach a spectacular vantage point located on the inner arch of the bridge at the highest point of this climb, which is situated about halfway to the top of the bridge. With a maximum of 12 people, you're sure to have customized attention from your expert guide.

The VIVID Climb (3.5 Hours):
Experience the magic of a bird’s-eye view of Sydney as it sparkles during VIVID Sydney 2018. Get spectacular views of the colorful light installations all around the harbor and as you climb the bridge. You'll also take part in the Sydney Harbour Bridge light show when you wear the provided VIVID Climb Vest. You will climb into the frame of a unique festival installation, high above the city, to capture a must-have image to commemorate your VIVID climb. The VIVID Climb will only be available during VIVID Sydney 2018 (May 25 to June 16, 2018).

BridgeClimb Mandarin (2.25 hours):
Take the 2.25-hour BridgeClimb Mandarin with an expert guide who speaks Mandarin fluently.

Mandarin Karaoke Climb (2.25 hours):
Help bring the year of the dog to life and celebrate Chinese New Year with your friends and family by singing your favourite karaoke songs on a stage like no other, on the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge! Choose from a selection of popular Chinese and K-pop songs to sing solo or in a group. Your performance will be yours to keep forever through a complimentary group photograph and an eight second video capturing your sky-high performance. The Karaoke Climb is available in Mandarin only and follows the standard BridgeClimb Express route to the summit. There are several departure times daily available during the Chinese New Year festival only, from February 9 and March 2, 2018.

Fantastic, once in a lifetime experience. Not as physically demanding as thought it might have been and lots of stops to appreciate the views. Great guide, Pete, who kept us entertained throughout with info and chat. Child of 8 years enjoyed it.

Climbers are not allowed to bring any belongings. I didn't hear about any size/weight restrictions, however to be 100% sure I would contact them directly.

I suggest you book the bridge climb in advance. Once you arrive in port you can walk from the ship to the bridge climb office in less than 15 minutes.
