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 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.
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.
“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.
