Admire the beautiful colours of the disappearing daylight, as the moonlight takes its night shift. It will be a scenery to never forget! 

 

The adventure starts in the climb base below the Bradfield Highway. You walk on catwalks until you have reached the south-east pylon.

After a small summit happy dance with your group, you can cross the spine of the Harbour Bridge towards the Darling Harbour side and descend back to the climb base.

About Sydney Harbour Bridge 
The Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of the most well known and photographed landmarks in Australia. It is the largest (but not the longest) steel arch bridge in the world. The top of the bridge is standing 134 metres above the harbour. Locals call the bridge the 'Coathanger', because of its arch-based design.
