Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb & the Rocks from White Bay
Bring your spirit of adventure along for this excellent opportunity to experience Sydney from above and below. You’ll begin your day with a short transfer by mini-coach to the world-famous Sydney Harbour Bridge, also known as the coat hanger, for a climb to its pinnacle. After the safety briefing you’ll be outfitted with a climbing suit and safety harness. Your qualified guide will lead you up the eastern arch, to the summit and down the western arch of the bridge. Traveling in a small group, you are escorted all the way. On reaching the top of the bridge, pause to celebrate your moment of glory and take in the unrivaled panorama of the harbor and your ship 400 feet below. Back on solid ground and invigorated by your climb, you will receive a souvenir photograph. Continue on foot to the Rocks, Sydney’s oldest village, for a walking tour. The Rocks lies at the heart of this great metropolis and is the area where the city’s first settlers hammered together a primitive village. As you tread through this centuries-old district, discover notable buildings, classic terrace houses and sandstone cottages. The Rocks is also famous for its numerous pubs. You will stop at a historic pub for a glass of beer and a chance to mingle with the locals. Top off your exhilarating bridge climb and historic stroll in true Down Under tradition. Cheers mate! Re-join your coach for a short transfer back to the ship, or leave the tour at the Rocks and make your own way back
