Sydney Harbour Bridge Plan a Holiday 2021

I decided to make a separate post just about crossing the Sydney Harbour Bridge because it was one of my favourite Sydney experiences and I would highly recommend it. A great bonus of it is that it’s 100% free! I love a good deal and am always on the lookout for free and budget-friendly things to do and see while travelling.


When you cross thing bridge you will get some really phenomenal views of the city, the harbour, and the city! You have the option of walking back and forth or just walking one way. I decided to take the train to Milsons Point Station and walk across the city.

If you are only going to walk one way across the bridge I would recommend starting from Milsons Point because this way you are walking towards the harbour with a great view the whole way. I also think it’s easier to figure out how to get onto the bridge from Milsons Point than from the other side at The Rocks District. As soon as you come up from the train, there is a sign pointing you in the way of the bridge and you walk for a very short amount of time and see the bridge stairs.

Once you’re on the bridge it does not take long to cross, or maybe it just seems like very little time because you are so busy taking in the beautiful scenery!

I was quite surprised to see the fence along the walking path of the bridge, it looks to me like something that would be at a maximum-security prison. There have been about 40 people that had committed suicide since the bridge opened and I guess they just really want to make sure no one jumps but I feel like it’s a bit much.

I had a hard time picking just a few pictures because there were so many great ones but here are some of my favourites!
