The Pylon Lookout is another Sydney gem! The Harbour Bridge is sandwiched between two pylons, which act as the structure that hold the wiry arms of the bridge up. One of the pylons has been turned into a lookout spot! I hadn’t actually heard of the Lookout before, and wouldn’t have visited had I not been given tickets following my Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb. It was a great opportunity because the view from the Lookout is different to any other place in Sydney because of its vantage point, and its side-view so close to the Harbour Bridge which makes it really special. You can even see Bridge Climbers making their way up the bridge!
We all know that people all over the globe are familiar with the giant coat-hanger of Sydney, aka the Sydney Harbour Bridge, but what a lot of people don’t know is that you can actually climb the arches of the Harbour Bridge! Doing the Bridge Climb was something I’d wanted to do for years, so I was really stoked when I got the chance to do it some months back. It was a lot of fun, not strenuous at all like I had imagined, more like a walk through a park! The staff were incredibly friendly, and taught us about the history of the bridge as we climbed. The views were absolutely incredible – we could see the entire city! I had a blast and would definitely recommend it to everyone. Check out details below!
We humans love to travel and explore new places, but we often tend to overlook the place in which we live and instead seek to explore far-away places. I know so many people who have travelled the world but haven’t yet explored the amazing places local to them. Having been one of those people myself, I jumped at the opportunity to become a tourist in my own city. It was seriously the best idea ever, I had the most incredible ‘holiday’ without having to worry about flights or accommodation The ultimate dream!
The first place on the agenda was the most tourist-y location of them all. A trip down to the heart of Sydney, Circular Quay. Circular Quay is a great place to visit because not only does it deliver fantastic views of the Sydney Harbour and the opportunity to climb the Opera House steps, it also offers Jet Boating experiences, houses Sydney’s Royal Botanic Garden, and also boasts a huge array of restaurants that line the way from the train station/ferry terminals all the way to the Opera House itself.
