The world’s largest steel arch tower, the Sydney Harbor Bridge, is a famous symbol of one of the finest natural harbors known to humanity. Opened in 1932, the bridge has been loved by the Sydneysiders as a coat hanger. You can walk and climb or climb to the top for stunning views.
It took eight years to build the famous bridge using 53,000 tonnes of steel and six million hand-operated rivets. During construction, the two steel parts of the strong metal were orbited on August 19, 1930, at 10 pm. Other interesting facts about the famous Australian Bridge include:
The maze extends up to 503 meters
The top is 134 meters above the water
The pilon granite was excavated on the NSW south coast, near Moria
The father of the bridge is JJC. Bradfield, an engineer
