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. Work out when and for how long to visit Sydney Harbour Bridge and other Sydney attractions using our handy Sydney road trip tool.

  • From Sydney's central business centre to the North Shore, Sydney Harbour is across by the steel through-arch Sydney Harbour Bridge. This amazing bridge gives the area a new lease on life in addition to serving as a means of mobility. It enhances the grandeur and vibrancy. A well-known iconic image of Sydney and of Australia is the vista of the bridge, the harbour, and the nearby Sydney Opera House. I believe it serves as a primary link between Sydney and North Sydney. I had a peek of this iconic bridge on my 2019 trip to Australia. Great shot subject and backdrop.
  • Walking the length of the harbour bridge is a must if you are in Sydney
