Description: Every Tuesday I offer the “A to Z challenge”, walking step by step through the alphabet.
If you would like to join in then please click here.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge is a steel through arch bridge across Sydney Harbour that carries rail, vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian traffic between the Sydney central business district and the North Shore. Opened March 19 1932. Wikipedia
I have walked across it, driving across in a car, taken a train over and driven under in the tunnel. I have climbed up one of the towers you can see at either end to get some lovely photographs, but I have never climbed the bridge, and I never will!
If you have a spare AUS$200 then maybe you’d like to try it? Or perhaps you have.
I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

A veritable icon for your letter H Jude. I doubt that I will ever get there, so it is nice to see your ‘personal’ photos.
Regards as always, Pete. x
Hoping to get there again this year and do some more exploring, very expensive there now though 😦
Lovely, have never been to Australia. Yet another on the every growing list… 😉 xx
Hope you make it, it is a wonderful place though I believe you have to get away from the coast to see the ‘real’ Australia.
So I’ve heard…but I wouldn’t have a clue where to go! I hope you get to go this year too to see your family xx
Oh yes, so do I. Though he is talking about maybe spending some time working in the UAE – so who knows!
I’m very impressed with your Challenge output, Jude, not to mention your fab photos.
Thank you Jenny, I do have a lot of photos to choose from, I enjoy finding a suitable one for the challenges 🙂
It all becomes clear! 🙂 Dimwit here hadn’t made the connection.
I’d love to see this bridge from almost any angle, Jude, but sadly the good old Tyne bridge is as near as I’m likely to get. Good job I have a thriving imagination.
You mean you wouldn’t climb it, even if it weren’t so crazily expensive?
I wouldn’t climb it if it was free to do so! Do they do bridge climbs on the Tyne bridge?
That’s a stunning bridge and fabulous photos of it too. I do hope I get to see it one day.
Sydney is a stunning city, if only London had such wonderful beaches around it!
The Perfect H!
“I wouldn’t climb it if it was free to do so!” Me either! Though after seeing Lignum Draco’s pics from the South Pylon, I will venture that high some day soon. When it stops raining, that is …
You have our rain now? Thank goodness it has gone somewhere else, we were getting very tired of it 😉
I got some interesting photos from the tower (is that what you call the South Pylon?) but this was pre-digital so only a few images. Hoping to be back at the end of the year to take some more and better ones!
Drop me an email if you do come, and we can have an outing to the South Pylon. Maybe a bevvie or two afterwards, even. 😉
Sounds good 🙂
what you write about the harbor bridge in Sydney: “I have walked across it, driving across in a car, taken a train over and driven under in the tunnel. I have climbed up one of the towers…” – would be nice for other bridges too: Brooklyn Bridge, Golden Gate Bridge…
I can see a motif in the middle of the arch so I assume you were there in January perhaps. They do a different motif every year for new years eve.
I prefer the bridge to the tunnel but it is often slower so I mostly use the tunnel – the views aren’t as good.
I didn’t realise you’d closed your postcards blog which I was following.
I didn’t know that! I think this was taken in October. My son (he lives in Sydney) uses the tunnel mostly too, but when I visit I use public transport or Shanks’s pony!
Sorry! Yes I stopped using Postcards in January – merged it with this blog to try and make life simpler. You shall have to follow Travel Words now 😀 😀
