Sydney BridgeClimb

Please click for full details

The Sydney BridgeClimb offers incredible panoramic views of the city, and is a ‘must-see’ when visiting! There are three types of tour, all or which are enjoyable and informative. We would reccomend the ‘BridgeClimb’ to see more of the sites from the very top at a leisurely pace, but if you are short of time, the ‘Sampler’ climb is also an incredible experience. If you want the full experience, but you just want to head to the top and back as quickly as posisble (just over two hours), the ‘BridgeClimb Express’ is the one to go for, although it is advised you only go for this option if you have a good level of fitness.

On a good day (or evening) from the top of the bridge you can see the Blue Mountains in the distance and it offers an unrivalled view of the Opera House. Sydney will be very busy during the Ashes, so advance booking is the only way to guarantee your BridgeClimb. We would advise you to get booked on as soon as possible.

New Year's Eve

Celebrate New Year’s Eve on tour

Howzat Travel has reserved places at some of the best locations in Sydney to celebrate New Year’s Eve and watch the famous fireworks from the Harbour Bridge. To get the best views of the fireworks, Starship Sydney and The Pontoon are vessels that cruise around the harbour, while for a 5-star dining experience, staying on dry land, comes in the form of Pier One, where great views of the bridge will be mixed with a great atmosphere and award-winning food.

Please note, there are limited places available for each option, and these will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

Starship Sydney

Very limited availability

The premium New Year’s Eve option. Hop on board the Starship Sydney for a night cruising around Sydney Harbour, being right at the heart of the atmosphere. You will be accompanied by a band all night, with three decks of live food stations to enjoy. This large, spacious ship will be in prime position for the fireworks, with views of the Harbour Bridge and the Opera house. It’s certainly one not to be missed!

The Pontoon

Very limited availability

The Pontoon is a Howzat favourite, four years ago over 100 Howzat Travellers danced the night away while floating around the Sydney Harbour. The newly-renovated vessel is one of many in harbour and has a great view when the clock strikes midnight and the entertainment starts. You will be joined by a DJ for the evening and be catered for with roving canapes on arrival and a range of food stations throughout the deck.

Pier One Sydney Harbour Hotel

SOLD OUT!

Pier One is a hotel that sits right alongside the Sydney Harbour Bridge. This venue offers uninterrupted views of the Harbour Bridge from one side and from the other a fantastic picture of the water heading out along the river. The food here is renowned for being some of the best in Sydney and the space really could not be better for a New Year’s Eve event. For this price, what you’re getting is an absolute bargain (by New Year’s Eve in Sydney standards…), with all-inclusive food and drink, entertainment and perfect placement for the fireworks.

Dress – Cocktail
