If you haven’t ticked ‘climb the Harbour Bridge’ off your bucket list yet, then sadly you may have just lost your chance to do it with current hosts because BridgeClimb Sydney just lost the rights for future climbs.

BridgeClimb Sydney confirmed that it had been unsuccessful in renewing its contract to operate on the Sydney Harbour Bridge after more than 20 years of taking international and domestic tourists over the iconic site.

The decision was made by Roads and Maritime Services (RMS).


The final climb with BridgeClimb Sydney will take place on 30 September 2018. All customers with bookings after the 30th will be contacted when there is further clarity regarding the future of climbs.

In an online statement, BridgeClimb Sydney’s Chairman and Founder, Paul Cave, said it had been a privilege for the company to “make a hero of the Bridge” by taking nearly four million climbers across over two decades.


“Our team have worked tirelessly to deliver the ultimate experience of Sydney.”

“Over 1,500 team members have made a hero of the Bridge, and of every single Climber and visitor since 1998,” he added,

“Every one of our past and present team can hold their heads high on what we have created together. The team and our customers are our immediate priority.”
