Two icons

Sydney Harbour has two of Australia's top icons:

Sydney Harbour Bridge

The other renowned and oft-photographed icon is the Sydney Harbour Bridge (see photo). It was built in 1932 and has picked up several nicknames, including "the coat hanger" (which the structure vaguely resembles)


Bridge tour

You can take a guided tour to the very top of the bridge. You walk up the giant arch on its catwalk and are hooked to a safety line in case you slip. You also need to climb ladders and navigate tight passageways. The views and adventure are thrilling, though the price is quite steep for some pocketbooks.
