BridgeClimb Sydney celebrates three millionth climber

Today, BridgeClimb Sydney celebrated the three millionth climber to scale to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

At 10:15, Caitlin McWilliams, from Wellington, New Zealand, and her family climbed to the summit of the Bridge, 134 metres above sea level. 11 year old Caitlin is in Australia visiting her dad, who lives in Willoughby, during the school holidays. She climbed the Bridge with her father, Mark McWilliams, and her older brother, Samuel.

“I was really surprised when I found out. It’s pretty cool to think three million people have climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge before me,” Caitlin said. “I’ve seen lots of people doing it, and I’ve always wanted to do it myself. I just loved the view from the top, and I thought the whole experience was pretty awesome.”

Paul Cave, Chairman and Founder BridgeClimb Sydney, congratulated Caitlin on her achievement and gave her a gift to mark the occasion. “The BridgeClimb team is very excited to reach this historic milestone. We’ve always felt very privileged to welcome each and every climber from around Australia and the world who comes to experience climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge, but of course number three million is perhaps that little bit extra special!”, said Paul Cave.

“Since BridgeClimb’s inception, it’s been essential that we continually deliver a unique experience to both our domestic and international customers. We now currently have four climbs on the Bridge, the most recent being the introduction of the Mandarin Climb. We look forward to welcoming many more climbers from all corners of the globe to summit the Bridge”.

BridgeClimb operates in, on and around one of Australia’s most renowned icons. It’s this combination of the iconic nature of the Bridge together with the climb experience that has helped BridgeClimb acquire the status of a must-do Sydney tourist attraction.

During 14 years of operation, BridgeClimb has seen three million climbers from over 137 countries, more than 4,000 engagements, and approximately 20 weddings on top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
