Harbour Bridge Walk

With this past Saturday being the last in April, I took a quick train north for the monthly Kirribilli Markets. A friend of mine from class, who lives just a few minutes from Kirribilli in North Sydney, met me for a browse through a few hundreds stalls of clothes, crafts and food.

Though she had to leave for soccer practice (she’s on the Sydney Uni team), I hung around and explored Kirribilli, from the main restaurant row to Luna Park and through the residential parts along the water.

It was cool seeing the opposite side of the Opera House.

Then an American friend, Jeff, met me at Milson’s Point so we could walk across the Harbour Bridge back to Circular Quay. The Harbour Bridge Climb, which takes you to the very top, costs up to $300, but a simple walk on the pedestrian path doesn’t cost a thing.

The views are still pretty good.

You can also get almost the same view as the $200 Bridge Climb if you pay $8 to go up to the Pylon lookout on the bridge. And it's worth walking all the way round from Kirribilli to Blues Point/McMahons Point to get those classc views of the bridge from the west.
