Pylon Lookout Tours & Tickets

Pylon Lookout
In addition to the Bridge Climb, there is a cheap alternative to get the famous view from the top of town on the Sydney Harbour Bridge–the Pylon Lookout. The bridge walkway leads to the South East Pylon and to the entrance of the lookout, from where 200 steps lead up to the viewing platform located 285 feet (87 meters) above sea level.

From here enjoy fantastic panorama views of the Opera House, Circular Quay and the two arches of the Harbour Bridge. You'll also be able to observe the daring bridge climbers. 
 
The Pylon Lookout doesn't only consist of the viewing platform though, but is made up of three levels of exhibits. A visit to the small museum located inside the Pylon is included in an admission ticket and includes information about the history and construction of the bridge, including the dangerous working conditions of the riveters, stonemasons and riggers who constructed it. Hear incredible stories, such as the tale of a worker who survived a fall from the bridge, and watch a film that features the building process and artifacts that were crucial to the accurate construction of one of Australia’s most famous icons.

Practical Info

The Pylon Lookout is only closed on Christmas Day, but apart from that, it is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. To get to the entrance, take the Bridge Stairs opposite the Australian Hotel up to the pedestrian walkway and walk north until you reach the South East Pylon.

Hours: Daily 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Closed Christmas Day.
