Climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge
Located next to the Opera House and across Sydney Harbour where vehicles pass by, this bridge has been visited by a lot of tourists. It’s all because of the beautiful views from a height of 440 feet from this bridge that you can savor. There are two ways to experience the beautiful views offered by this bridge.
