Sydney Harbor Bridge (Bridge Climb) - Sydney, NSW, Australia

Something we did not do, but, kind of wish we had was to take part in the Bridge Climb!
For a hefty fee you can climb to the very top of the Sydney Harbor Bridge.  It's quite a workout but surely worth the effort for the view of the city!
People do this day and evening...amazing!
Can you see the dots on the top...brave people!!!
Jerry and I walked the span of the bridge from the traffic/pedestrian level and that was impressive.
We viewed the Opera House and city from many vantage points.
Gotta' love Sydney!

Wow - I got vertigo just from looking at the people on top of that bridge (mind you, I get vertigo at the top of a 6 foot ladder ;-)

Great shot of the bridge !

Couldn't resist looking at a lot of shots from your down under trip - fantastic ! Especially all the underwater ones with gorgeous colors. And I loved those ones of your grandsons playing with the flashlights - sure beats an iPod/iPad ...

Happy New Year !

Oh wow, the view from up there must be gorgeous but what a climb it would be. I would have been very tempted to give it a try.

The views from there are marvellous.

Carolyn, it's a shame you had grey skies on your visit. We've had quite a lot of rain this summer but when the clouds go away you get some stunning blue skies, like we've had this week.

I cannot even begin to imagine the fear I would experience trying to climb of to the top of the bridge. Am assuming they have tethers hanging which you hold onto as you climb p. Too scary for me. Your photo of it is superb...and I love getting to see the people on the top. genie

I think that would be fun and I'll bet the views are superb, from the top or the walkway. Nice shot.

Nice shot
I would never even think of making that climb. I prefer to stay safely on the ground.

Have a nice weekend =)

You said you gotta love Sydney, i fully understand. Sydney is my first travel abroad, and now after many countries later including a few in Europe, it is still my favorite, and the most that i miss.
