The Sydney Harbour Bridge, before the Sydney Opera House came into existence, was the city's foremost landmark. At a length of 1,149 metres, it is the world’s sixth longest arch bridge. The arch bridge shape of this heritage-listed monument has earned it the nickname ‘Coathanger’. It is one of the most photographed landmarks of the city, but the beautiful views captured from the bridge, specifically the top, make it worth the visit. Along with holding one of the widest roads of the bridges of the world, the Sydney Harbour Bridge also holds a railway line and a pedestrian walkway. However, the most popular activity at the bridge is the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb, where you climb up the southern half of the bridge to a height of 134 metres, sure to give you an amazing 360 view of the most happening part of Sydney. You can also visit the bridge’s other tourist attractions found at the Southeast Pylon. Whether you want to explore Aboriginal culture, the history of the bridge or just enjoy a magical view from the numerous vantage points of this massive bridge, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is an integral part of the city and a Sydney must-visit.
