|Harbor Bridge in Sydney, Australia|

|We're at the top overlooking Sydney Harbor with the Opera House behind us.|
|The bridge rises, then crosses over and returns on the other side.|
Following our tour, we devour a pizza at a nearby pub and then walk back to explore one of four concrete and granite pylons that flank the bridge. We learn more history while climbing up inside the pylon to an outdoor viewing spot, a great place to take the photos we couldn’t get during the bridge climb.
The three and a half hour tour is well organized, and guides are very knowledgeable about bridge statistics and history. Tours leave frequently during the day, and twilight and night tours are also available. Contact www.bridgeclimb.com for more information and rates.
