Walk across Sydney Harbour Bridge

Blue.  Incredibly blue.  The color of water in Sydney makes you feel like staring at a life-size painting. And in between the magnificent waterscape and azure skies,  lies a city of skyscrapers, stunning mountains, and a never-ending coastline.  Walk across Sydney Harbour Bridge on a warm day with friends and family.

After a long time,  along with my friends,  I went on a walk across Sydney Harbour Bridge. I had almost forgotten how brilliant the color of water looked, reflecting the sky above. 

Getting here is very easy by public transport.  We rode a train to Circular Quay, then made our way towards The Rocks. But not before having a quick bite at Hungry Jacks. 

After that, we followed the signboards to find the Bridge Stairs in Cumberland Street (The Rocks) that lead to the footpath on the bridge.

I watched ferries sail past the iconic Opera House, admiring the scene through the barbed wires. The cool breeze brushed away any tiredness that we were feeling. Live traffic runs alongside the footpath but is divided by tall wire mesh.


  We walked till the end of the bridge and then made our way back along the same route, taking dozens of pictures and selfies. 




=> Free to public
=> Takes about 15 minutes or more, depending on how many stops you make to take pictures. 🙂
=> Look out for Cahill Walk/Harbour Bridge road signs.
=> You can start the walk at either end – Milsons Point or The Rocks

Note: This is not a Bridge Climb. This is a walk across the bridge done on a  footpath. Bridge Climb is another amazing activity you can do in Sydney, but it’s not free and cost over AUD 300.

  5. The view of the Opera House from the Sydney Harbour Bridge is amazing. We have family who lived in Sydney but we never got around to visiting. Now they’ve moved to Brisbane, so not sure if we’ll ever get to Sydney!

  10. I love the azure blue that reflects on the water! Beautiful iconic structures just adding to the magic! Sydney is so so beautiful and your captures just simply wonderful, Rajlakshmi!

  11. You are right! The color of the water in here is so beautiful. I can spend hours walking around. A bit of a coincidence since this week I posted about Lake Tahoe in California. That place has some beautiful shades of blue too.
