Pylon Lookout


Climb 200 stairs inside the south-east pylon to the Pylon Lookout for sweeping views of the World Heritage Listed Sydney Opera House and Harbour surrounds.

The Bridge’s four pylons are primarily aesthetic. It took 250 Australian, Scottish and Irish stonemasons to prepare the granite for them. Now home to the Pylon Lookout Museum, the south-east pylon has been open to the public since 1934.

The Museum contains a comprehensive collection of displays that celebrate the construction of the Bridge, and shares the challenges of our forefathers.

A free entry pass to the Pylon Lookout Museum is included in each BridgeClimb ticket.

How Do I Get There?

Take the Bridge Stairs, opposite The Australian Hotel, up to the pedestrian walkway on the road-deck of the Bridge. Walk north until you reach the south-east pylon. The Pylon Lookout is open 10am to 5pm daily.
