Sydney Harbour Bridge turns 75!March 19, 2007 at 2:30 pm | Posted in around sydney, other stuff | Leave a comment
Today is the 75th anniversary of the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Yesterday the bridge was closed to auto traffic so that thousands of pedestrians could walk across the Harbour from North Sydney to the CBD.
To celebrate, R and I, along with our friend Tim, did an evening BridgeClimb! We took a breathalyzer test (my first, and hopefully last!), put on goofy jumpsuits and climbed 134 metres to the top of the arch for the most amazing view of Sydney after dark. I’m sure the experience is fantastic on any night, but last night’s Aboriginal smoke ceremony and the throng of bridge walkers in light-up baseball caps below made it incredible.
