Step back in time to relive the magic of the Sydney Harbour Bridge – from its beginnings, the planning and construction, to the excitement of the opening ceremony and the celebration felt by the people of Sydney, and enjoy panoramic views of the Harbour from the original Sydney city Lookout.
Dubbed the original Sydney lookout, due to its position as the highest viewing point in Sydney when the bridge opened, the Sydney Harbour Bridge Pylon Lookout remains an interesting part of the bridge and Sydney history.
There are 200 stairs to the Pylon Lookout, 87 metres above mean sea level, but on the way up there are three levels of exhibits where you will discover the history and construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the men who built it, and the vision of JJC Bradfield, chief engineer.
The Pylon Lookout offers magnificent views of Sydney Harbour, Botanical Gardens and the surrounding areas. On a clear day you can see as far as the Blue Mountains.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
