Since its launch on 1st October 1998, BridgeClimb has welcomed more than 4 million climbers from around the world to scale the arches of Australia’s most famous landmark – the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Whether it’s watching the city wake at dawn, admiring the 360-degree views throughout the day or taking in the romance of twilight and illumination of Sydney at night, the experience captivates visitors and locals alike.
On October 1, BridgeClimb marked its 21st Birthday and is inviting travelers to join the month-long celebrations.The experience is set to throwback to the 1990s with the top music hits from 1998 playing at the summit and will play host to some of the bridge’s first climbers, along with master climbers who have scaled to the peak hundreds of times.BridgeClimb has created some of Australia’s more memorable moments. It hosted the country’s first same-sex marriage. It has hosted A-listers like talk-show host and media mogul Oprah Winfrey, musician Katy Perry, actor Hugh Jackman (X-Men, Les Miserables), actor and musician Will Smith (Men in Black, Aladdin), supermodel Gigi Hadid and actor Ben Stiller as his iconic character Derek Zoolander. Additionally, BridgeClimb hosted the world’s first Maori haka dance atop the structure in an effort to raise awareness for mental health.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge is the world’s largest steel arch bridge. It has become one of the most iconic locations on earth to pop the question, get married, celebrate a birthday or an achievement, overcome a fear of heights or to simply drink in the spectacular views of Sydney’s sparkling harbour 440 feet above sea level.
