Climb for a Cause

Step up for mental health and Climb for a Cause with BridgeClimb and Black Dog Institute.


Sunday 7 May 2023

Let's rally together and make a difference in the fight for mental health! Climb for a Cause is back and better than ever, following its incredible inaugural event in 2022 that saw over 550 participants and raised over $70,000 for the Black Dog Institute.

Mental illness affects so many of our loved ones, neighbours, and fellow Australians, yet far too many go without the help they need. Your support is crucial in making a real impact and changing lives through ground-breaking research, education programs, and support services provided by the Black Dog Institute.

So, let's join forces and scale new heights, not just physically, but also in our mission to create a mentally healthy Australia for all. Grab your family, friends, co-workers, community group, or sports team and climb during the day on Sunday, May 7, 2023 for an unforgettable experience. Take in the breathtaking views of Sydney while being a mental health hero and making a difference!

Climb for a Cause will take place on day Climbs only and your journey commences the moment you register and finishes when you reach the Summit of the Sydney Harbour Bridge on a Hybrid Climb Route, unique to this event. You will ascend the eastern upper arch of the Bridge and enjoy breathtaking views of the Sydney Opera House, then once you reach the top you can take a moment to reflect and commend your achievement with those around you, before making your way back down the western arch for a closer view inside the giant beams of steel that make up the arches of the legendary “Coathanger”.

Each group of 14 climbers will be led by one of our expert Climb Leaders, who will keep you safe and entertained along the way with guided commentary on the fascinating history of Sydney and the iconic Harbour Bridge. The total Day Climb experience will last for approximately 3 hours.


Once you've conquered the Bridge it's then time to reward yourself. Head on over to our Relaxation Station, where you'll bask in the glory of your hard-earned fundraising rewards and our wonderful Guest Experience partner, Nudie Juice, will be on hand with a revitalizing, complimentary healthy drink to quench your thirst and recharge your batteries.


As if raising money for a fantastic Cause wasn't reward enough, we have partnered with many friends of BridgeClimb to provide a number of fun incentives along the way, and prizes for top fundraisers. Here's a sneak peek:

  1. If you raise just $100, you will gain free access to the BridgeClimb Pylon Lookout & Museum 
  2. $250 will satisfy your taste buds with a yummy Darrell Lea chocolate goodie bag
  3. A snazzy Black Dog Institute T-Shirt is yours if you raise $500
  4. Raise $1000 and score yourself a sleek BridgeClimb water bottle 
  5. A  Vivid Sydney Climb (for up to 14 people) if you're deemed the top fundraising team!

Remember, the ultimate reward for participating in a fundraising event is the knowledge that you are making a positive impact and helping to support a good cause. However, these incentives can be a fun way to keep you motivated along the way.
