Sydney Harbour Bridge

Built in 1932, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is the world's largest steel arch bridge. The bridge connects the city to the North Shore. Every New Year's Eve, fireworks are set off from the bridge at 9 p.m. and midnight, making it one of the most spectacular New Year's celebrations in the world.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge is accessible by car, train, bicycle, or on foot. The entrance to the bridge on foot is above The Rocks, or close to the Milsons Point train station at the other end of the bridge. One of the pylons, which is closest to the city, houses a museum about the bridge. Since its introduction in 1998, more than 1.5 million people have climbed the Sydney Harbour Bridge with BridgeClimb. BridgeClimb is a small group adventure offering 3 1/2 hours of guided climbs to the summit of the city's most prominent icon: The Sydney Harbour Bridge.
