You may not be able to take a selfie once you reach the top of Sydney Harbour Bridge (come on – adrenaline-filled climbers and selfie sticks 440 feet up in the air?!), but you can definitely pose it up a storm once you’ve conquered the summit.
With the vibrant backdrop of the city behind you and the blue depth of the harbour either side, the traffic rushing beneath you and a view as far as the Blue Mountains in the distance, nothing quite compares to the feeling of being atop one of the most famous bridges in the world. And when it comes to photo ops, it doesn’t get much better than this.
After you’ve taken the 1332 steps to the summit of the bridge you can either take a leaf out of Ben Stiller’s book and have your “blue steel” moment (yes he has climbed the bridge and yes he did do the famous Zoolander pose) or strike a feminist Charlie’s Angels with your girls.
You could even play with perspectives as the Sydney Opera House looks almost toy like from the top of the bridge and pretend to hold it in the palm of your hand – or simply try and look your very best fresh-faced tourist self – however we find a comedy pose might be more memorable!
