The Mad Hatter’s High Tea on the Sydney Harbour Bridge: Climbers follow the White Rabbit to the Top

On Wednesday 1st April 2015, surprised Climb groups followed The White Rabbit to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge for a special Mad Hatter’s tea party, 134 metres above the sparkling Harbour in a salute to April’s Fool’s Day.

The unsuspecting Climbers began ascending the iconic bridge for what they believed to be a traditional BridgeClimb experience. When they reached the top, they were greeted by a jittery character, anxiously inspecting her pocket-watch whilst shouting “You’re late! You’re late, for a very important date!”

Each date had an honorary Alice join the Mad Hatter in an unorthodox tea ceremony as he served them each Earl Grey tea, Camomile tea, Peppermint tea, Chai tea, and several other teas - all of them invisible, in accordance with BridgeClimb’s strict safety policies.

The rest of the Climb group gathered around the spectacle, indulged in mini cupcake chocolates, whilst cheering Alice on in his or her astonishing encounter with the ranting millinery enthusiast, a true April Fool.

Mel Harling from Blackpool, UK, one of the honorary Alices, said, “I can’t believe I just followed the White Rabbit to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge for a very important date with the Mad Hatter. I never knew invisible tea could be so fun”.

Once the high tea party concluded, honorary Alice and other guests resumed the journey of 1,332 steps along the impressive steel structure. Back on the BridgeClimb, they enjoyed unobstructed vistas spanning as far east as Bondi and as far west as The Blue Mountains.

This is the second April’s Fool prank organised by BridgeClimb, last year’s being a world first Flash Mob on the Sydney Harbour Bridge:
