The sheer achievement of climbing the Harbour Bridge is as satisfying as the panorama unfolding beneath your feet. The waterfront, the Opera House and, on a clear day, views from the Pacific to the Blue Mountains. By day, there’s a real energy with road traffic and ferries scuttling below, but there’s a special magic at twilight as the city glows electric around you.
