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.
