The Sydney Harbour Bridge is a steel through arch bridge across Sydney Harbour that carries rail, vehicular, bicycle and pedestrian traffic between the Sydney CBD and the North Shore. The bridge is locally nicknamed "The Coat Hanger" because of its arch-based design.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge is a national icon and a natural focal point for Sydney, the harbour and the harbour-side areas, whether it is a cup of coffee, a meal, some accommodation or somewhere to shop.
Sydney Harbour is one of the worlds finest, enjoy the view and its dynamic nature. The Sydney Harbour Bridge was an engineering masterpiece when it was opened in 1932 and remained for many years the tallest structure in Sydney. Even today, more than seventy years later, the Bridge still dominates the harbour skyline.
