JJC Bradfield realised the dream of crossing the glittering harbour when he steered the Sydney Harbour Bridge to its completion in March 1932. The exhibition 'Proud Arch' tells the story of his achievement. It celebrates Bradfield's wider vision for Sydney, the men who built the bridge and the people who documented their heroism for prosperity. Find out how they constructed the world's greatest arch bridge, relive the magic of the opening celebration and enjoy Sydney's panoramic views.
The Pylon Lookout is accessible via the bridge road deck pedestrian pathway. From The Rocks, take the Argyle Stairs then the Cumberland Street stairway to access the bridge pedestrian pathway. Climb 200 steps to the very top of the Pylon, where you will be rewarded with spectacular panoramic views of the city of Sydney. Find out how the Sydney Harbour Bridge was constructed and discover the stories behind the opening celebration as you wander up, through three levels of exhibits, to the open-air lookout.
