The Unlikely Bookworm

Climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge

Despite having been in Sydney for almost six months now, one thing I’m yet but longing to do is climb the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge. Luckily, the lovely Vicky from Eat, Sleep, Love, Travel has agreed to write a guest post in honour of this epic adventure.

Sydney in the summer is such a magical place. There is so much to see and do, and the usually glorious weather that the city is blessed with means getting out and doing things which are sometimes, but not always, possible during the winter months.

My favourite thing to do is climb the Sydney Harbour Bridge, probably the most iconic structure in Sydney. This can, of course, be done at any time of year but in the summer you are less likely to get soaked doing it. The views that you get from the top are breath-taking; you can see far and wide over the whole city.

We did it at twilight which meant that we started the climb in full daylight, but by the time we reached the summit the sun was disappearing just beyond the horizon and the twinkling lights of the city were shining back at us. It looked truly beautiful; we drank in the views; submerged in the moment, truly appreciating what we had just done.
