Last weekend the weather was amazing and I was bored out of my mind.
It was Sunday morning, the sun was shining, and I felt like stretching my legs after a long week at work. Since I live in North Sydney, the Bridge Walk is one of my favorite walks to do when I want to go for a quick and easy walk. Since I just started blogging, I brought my fancy camera with me to take you along.
I ended up walking over the Bridge, then via The Rocks (Sydney’s oldest neighborhood filled with cute laneways, shops, and restaurants) to the Opera House which took me about 2 hours. I ended up taking the bus back home because I was exhausted. It was a bit warmer than anticipated so I was way overdressed and sweating my ass off – worth it though, I love doing this walk.
Check out my post underneath for lots of pictures.
The pedestrian footway is only located on the eastern side of the bridge, and to the right of you is the constant flow of traffic and trains which occupy the western side. Access to the bridge near Milsons Point Station.
The walk across the bridge should take from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on how many times you stop to admire the harbour and take photos. By walking across the bridge from north to south, you enjoy the best views because you are walking towards the city, not away from it.
Also, if you want to enjoy even better views, make sure to stop at the Pylon Lookout. for $15 you can climb one the pillars of the bridge, for some spectacular views.
SYDNEY HARBOUR BRIDGE WALK
SYDNEY OPERA HOUSE
Pretty much the second you walk into Circular Quay (The main ferry terminal in the city) you will be able to see this beauty. Walk to the right to get closer or walk to the left to take a picture from the other side of the harbor. Unfortunately, cruise ships often dock on that side, blocking the view. This is what happened when I was there, so I immediately walked up to the building.
The Sydney Opera House is probably one of the most iconic buildings in the world! Who has not seen the iconic images of the unique building at Sydney’s harbor?
If you have never seen this building up close, then you probably have never realized how crazy it looks! I for example always thought it was 1 large building, but there are instead 4 separate buildings! Mind is blown, right?
Walking over the bridge during sunrise or sunset is bloody spectacular, so make sure to get up early or stay up late one night to wander over the bridge. I have shot many photos of the bridge walk during sunset, here you can find a couple of amazing shots.
And if you are in Sydney during winter and the Vivid Festival is on, you definitely need to do this walk.
