BridgeClimb Sydney is back!!! And if you and the kids have never climbed one of the most incredible attractions in the world, then now is the PERFECT time.
Many of our kids had to go through the disappointment of cancelled birthday parties and abandoned holidays during the COVID-19 crisis. But a thrilling family climb on the Sydney Harbour Bridge would be the most memorable way to make up for any letdowns.
BridgeClimb Unlocked Offer Amazing School Holiday Specials
BridgeClimb Sydney is offering amazing Winter school holidays discounts so don’t miss out on this opportunity to get the most spectacular view of Sydney from the best vantage point around. Plus your kids won’t stop talking about their adventure.
Children can now climb for only $99, with adult rates priced at only $198 – that’s over 35% off adults, and over 50% off standard kids, day climb prices.
The Best Family Bonding Thrill
BridgeClimb Sydney is the most memorable family bonding experience. My eight year old loved every minute of the climb and she tackled the experience like a pro. I was concerned that the 3.5 hour summit climb would be too much but at no point did she complain – in fact if she could, she would have danced the whole way over the arches.
The experience is open to kids aged 8 years old and above (and 120cm+) and as long as your kids are able to climb a ladder, they can tackle BridgeClimb. Our guide told us that generally, the adults are more nervous than the children so age is definitely not a reflection of ability when it comes to scaling the majestic harbour structure.
Strict safety measures (as well as COVID-safe precautions) are in place from the very beginning of the BridgeClimb adventure and you get equipped with a special overall, harness, beanie, cap (which you can keep) as well as headphones to hear your guide.
Each climbing group is small, with a maximum of 14 people, so it’s easy to social distance and there is ample opportunity to sanitise along the way. To be honest, the last thing on my mind was germs, as I steeled my nerves to climb the vertical ladders up to the start of the climb. You’re hooked up to the rail the whole time so falling isn’t an option, but for people like me, who don’t love heights, it’s certainly a bit of a mind challenge. Seeing my daughter scurry up the rungs like a monkey did give me a bit more confidence and I made it to the top, exhilarated!
The actual walk up the arch is not difficult at all and we had ample time to stop and take in the most mesmerising view. It’s almost impossible to comprehend how close you are to the clouds and the world is quiet and peaceful, except for a ferry hooter or a train passing below.
The guide keeps you amused with stories of the history of the bridge and the colourful characters involved in building this enormous structure. Did you know there are over 6-million rivets, hammered by hand into the bridge. Mind-blowing! And now you get to walk on them!
At The Top Of The World
Reaching the summit, our group exploded in excitable applause and whoops. We made it! My daughter’s grin was enormous as the guide snapped our pics.
And then we slowly made our way down the opposite arch, seeing the city from a whole new angle and tackled the ladders back down to the bottom. That was my most hair-raising part but if you just take it step-by-step, you get there eventually. My daughter, on the other hand, wasn’t fazed one bit!
Take advantage of this super-special offer and book now for the school holidays. At these prices, tickets will be snapped up quickly so get yours before they sell out.
