Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb & the Rocks
Information not currently available.
Approximately 5 Hours
Bring your spirit of adventure along for this excellent opportunity to experience Sydney from above and below.
Begin your day with a short walk to the world-famous Sydney Harbour Bridge, also known as 'the coat hanger'. After a 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 will reach the top of the bridge, pausing 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 wander 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. Cheers mate!
It is a short walk back from the Rocks back to the ship.
