The best time to Climb the Harbour Bridge

If you’re looking to do the BridgeClimb, you may be wondering when the best time to Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge is. The short answer is any time. What makes the Bridge so amazing is that you are always guaranteed a magnificent view of the city, the harbour and its surroundings at all times of the day.

We run climbs at dawn, during the day, at sunset and at night. Each time of day has unique characteristics that makes a Climb special and well worth a repeat visit just to experience it.  

Climbing at dawn                                                                        

As the popular saying goes, the early bird gets the worm, and this perfectly describes climbing at dawn. Trust us when we say waking up in the dark is worth it to see the sun rise over Sydney Harbour.

Climbing in the day

In the day, you will experience the busy hum of Sydney, from the ferries cruising below, to Sydneysiders going about their day. As you make your way up, you will soak in the views of the blue waters of the Harbour, the Opera House and the beauty of the Royal Botanic Gardens. 

Climbing at twilight

Watching the day transition into evening from the Summit is a magical sight that has to be seen to be appreciated. The advantage of a twilight Climb is getting the best of two worlds: Sydney during the day and at night.

Climbing at night

At night, Sydney comes alive with bright lights and the bustling nightlife. When you do the BridgeClimb in the evening, you will get to see 360-degree views of the city and its surroundings illuminated.
