COVID-19: Health and Safety at BridgeClimb

Climbing back on top, together.


In accordance with current government health orders, climbs are available for fully vaccinated guests and those with medical exemptions* (note: children 8-15 years will not need to be vaccinated to visit). As of 15 December (or the date NSW reaches 95% vaccination rate), we expect to be able to welcome unvaccinated guests. Of course, all of our plans and visitation guidelines are subject to NSW Health Orders and we will continue to review our policy as requirements change.

*medical exemptions should be documented and authorised by a medical practitioner in accordance with the requirements of the NSW Chief Health Officer.

At BridgeClimb, your Health & Safety is and always will be our primary focus, and we’re pleased to let you know we are registered with the NSW Government as a COVIDSAFE business. This means we’ve made a few changes to keep you and our team safe, but you can still look forward to an unforgettable and exciting experience! 

With the gradual re-opening of the tourism sector amid the current pandemic, we will be operating under COVIDSAFE protocols that provide a level of hygiene and control, enabling us to reduce the spread of this virus together.

VISITINg Bridgeclimb

BridgeClimb acts in-line with the current NSW Health orders so please make sure you are eligible to visit BridgeClimb at this time.

Please stay home if you are feeling unwell, have been in contact with a suspected or confirmed case within that last 14 days, are awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test or have been requested by NSW Health to self-isolate or stay home.


It is a NSW Health requirement that all visitors (aged 16+) will need to check-in via the Service NSW app and provide proof of vaccination or medical exemption in order to enter BridgeClimb. Confirmation of check-in will be required at the point of entry along with digital or printed vaccination certificate/medical exemption. Please ensure you have downloaded the app prior to arrival and check in using the QR code once outside the premises.

Please note that upon entry to BridgeClimb you will also be asked to provide your completed Health & Safety Declaration along with your current ID (photo ID preferred), in order for us to verify you are safe to climb. We apologise for any duplication of information during this time and we appreciate your patience as we comply with current health orders and ensure a safe and secure experience on the Sydney Harbour Bridge.


Based on current restrictions, all guests to BridgeClimb are required to wear a mask while inside the BridgeClimb Base during the check-in and climb preparation/return process. Our team can provide you with a mask if needed. Climbers will also be given the option to wear a buff (with a PM2.5 filter) that can be worn on the Bridge during the climb, although this is not mandatory.

To ensure we maintain our safe environment we have put in place THE FOLLOWING COVIDSAFE PROTOCOLS: 

Enhanced monitoring & health screening of  all our climbers

Contactless ID checks for all climbers

Physical distancing

Messaging throughout BridgeClimb, providing clear guidance to visitors

Socially distant small Climb groups
Good to know:  BridgeClimb has always been a small group activity (Max. 14 climbers per group)

Hand hygiene - provision of hand washing and sanitiser stations

Increased cleaning throughout (high frequency)

Card-only transactions (contactless)

What’s not changed?

Our safe and authentic approach to climbing the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge, the breath-taking views you’ll experience as you journey the famous arches, and the great sense of achievement you’ll feel when you reach the Summit! 


During these times, It’s more important than ever to look out for one another, our families, our fellow climbers, our awesome team and our wider community.
