It is completely free and the best way to enjoy the panoramic views of Sydney Harbour and the Opera House. It is not very well advertised so most people are not aware of it. But do take the time to find it and climb the...More

Yes, the view is good but really 15 dollars for a 3 minute stair climb and 5 minute view! The free walk over the bridge is more than inspiring and much better value for money.

We went up to the pylon and the views were amazing. Definitely worthwhile, and for a fraction of the price of the bridge climb. This was I think around $30 for 2 people, as opposed to $550 for 2 people on the bridge climb
