Known by locals as the 'Coathanger', the Sydney Harbour Bridge is considered the world's greatest arch bridge and is one of Australia's best-known and photographed landmarks. An engineering masterpiece, the bridge represented a pivotal step in the development of modern Sydney and was recognised internationally as a symbol of progress and a vision of a splendid future for Australia.
You can climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge to take in breathtaking views of the harbour, Sydney Opera House and city skyline.
Officially opened on 19 March 1932, the Bridge was included in the National Heritage List on its 75th birthday in 2007.
