Run out of ideas for Father’s Day? Tired of the same old socks and mugs gifts. Well, how about gifting the man in your life the ultimate adrenaline adventure – to be one of the first to scale the full length of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in a brand new experience called The Ultimate Climb.

Up until now, BridgeClimb offered participants the opportunity to climb to the halfway point of the iconic “Coathanger” and then return along the opposite side.

However, BridgeClimb has just announced the Ultimate Climb, which allows climbers to follow a path spanning the entire length of the nation’s most famous and celebrated structure.

For the first time in history, climbers can experience the ‘other side’ of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

The Ultimate Climb Experience

The Ultimate In Bucket List Experiences

The Ultimate Climb follows a new route up to the Summit before covering untouched ground on the north side journeying over the full length of the arches towards the north-side Pylons and returning back over to Climber Base.

This is the biggest innovation to Australia’s iconic attraction since it opened in 1998.

If you’ve already been lucky enough to climb the Harbour Bridge previously, you’ve now got a new obstacle to tackle. Or if you haven’t yet taken up the challenge of BridgeClimb, now is the perfect time to up the ante and climb to new heights.

New Views

The Ultimate Climb will introduce incredible views over Milson’s Point, Lavender Bay, McMahons Point, Luna Park, North Sydney Olympic Pool and Kirribilli. Guests will not only explore an entirely new climbing route but also learn a wealth of knowledge on Sydney’s history from new commentary from BridgeClimb’s infamous Climb Leaders.

The new experience covers 3.3 kilometres, 1,621 steps and takes up to 3.5 hours from check-in.


Biggest Innovation

“The Ultimate Climb is a momentous celebration of Australia’s present, past and future. As we pay homage to the monumental build of the Sydney Harbour Bridge during the Great Depression, it’s an inspiring reminder of what Australians are capable of, and we feel reflecting on this history in time, we encourage Australians to reignite their love for one of the greatest cities on earth,” said David Hammon, BridgeClimb’s CEO.

“It’s important for recovery that the industry continues to breathe new life into offerings for those visiting from our domestic counterparts or internationally overseas. Ultimate is the biggest innovation to the climb experience in over 21 years, and we’re also extremely lucky to have Climb Leaders still with us since the beginning on this journey to bring to life some of Sydney’s greatest stories and moments. We’re so proud of this incredible milestone for BridgeClimb, it’s a first in history,” he said.

The new Ultimate Climb is open to first-time as well as seasoned climbers and launches to the public on 6 September, making it a great Father’s Day gift or day out for the whole family.

This bucket-list experience is priced at $348 for adults and $149 for children. However, all kids’ tickets during the school holidays are $99.

  • This is on my list of things to do in my life.


  • Mum and dad did this and loved it. I would need to do this alone as my family do not like heights


  • Not for me though exciting for others!


  • If you can get to the top you may as well go all the way over.


  • This is something I’d like to do one day before I’m too old to climb stirs lol!


  • If only I was okay with heights.


  • Having walked over the bridge just about every day as a young woman, the thought of climbing it is not on my bucket list. Great for those who want to do it though. Thanks for the post.


  • This looks so much fun.


  • I don’t live in Sydney so I don’t have to contemplate doing this. I’m sure a lot of people would jump at the chance but for someone that can hardly walk, it’s beyond my hopes and dreams.


  • Wow! I can imagine my hubby would. He’s always talked about doing the original walk/climb, so I know he would love this.


  • Wow is probably very expensive but a once in a life time thing

    • You can get a special deal $198 for an adult


  • I am absolutely terrified of heights, but this is something I would love to do! Not sure how I would cope, buy would love to try


  • that would be so fun !
