Every day we revel in the opportunity to share in Sydney and its world famous icons with our climbers. Sometimes, we have the chance to add a sprinkle of magic to a special cultural event to help mark the moment of an unforgettable memory.
Tonight, we had the opportunity to treat a group of climbers to a traditional Chinese experience at the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in celebration of the annual Moon Festival. This festival, also known as the Mid-Autumn Festival, is one of the most important dates on the Chinese calendar, and takes place on the 15th day of the 8th Chinese lunar month each year.
After suiting up and latching onto the Bridge for a special Mandarin Climb at night, the climbers ascended the arch through the heart of the Bridge under the enchanting flow of the full moon.
At the summit, the group were entertained by a live instrumental performance of popular Chinese songs, including The Moon Represents My Heart and enjoyed customary moon cakes. During the performance, the climbers were able to celebrate good health and fortune and appreciate the beauty of the moon at its brightest and fullest time of the year.
The Mandarin Climb departs at 3pm daily.
