- Children will be required to climb with and next to their parent/guardian.
- To climb the Bridge, children must be 8 years old and 1.2m tall to participate.

Yes. We encourage climbers who wear hearing aids to leave them safely in their lockers to prevent damage or loss while they are on the Bridge. We have a variety of headsets available and many of our hearing impaired climbers have agreed that these allowed them to enjoy the commentary delivered by their Climb Leader.
We also offer Auslan Climbs. On an Auslan Climb you’ll be accompanied by an Australian Sign Language interpreter who will interpret the commentary about Sydney and its world famous Bridge. These Climbs occur twice a month. Please get in touch with our team to find out more or to make a booking.
Our Climb times range from 1.5 to 3 hours depending on the Climb type you choose. We ask that Climbers allow a 15 minute provision to collect photos and depart. This applies to all Climbs.
The conditions vary based on the day’s weather and the Climb you choose. You can expect to possibly:
- climb ladders and walk on catwalks
- participate in prolonged stair climbing
- walk along uneven surfaces and via narrow passageways
- be exposed to all weather conditions.
No, unfortunately not. Climbers cannot take loose objects, including cameras, phones or GoPros, on the Bridge. This is to safeguard against anything falling from the Bridge.

Each climber receives one free group photo as part of the experience. Additional photos are available for pre-purchase with your booking, or from our Photographics Team after your Climb.
