The Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb is a 3 ½ hour guided tour to the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. In groups of up to 14 people, you’ll be led by one of the climb leaders on an adventure you will never forget.

Harbour Bridge Pylon Look Out
Just a short walk from the Harbour Rocks Hotel you can access the Sydney Harbour Bridge Pylon look out to experience stunning views.

The Rocks Market
What makes a great market? If it’s about passionate people selling things you want to buy in a pretty cool location then The Rocks Markets is one of Sydney’s greatest. You know The Rocks is on the doorstep of the CBD, but it’s slower here, and infinitely more charming. And, really, who wants to rush when there’s so much to take in. Where else can you buy dresses and bags designed by the stallholder, one-off jewelery, original artworks and prints, in a place where you can feel the sun on your face and catch glimpses of our gorgeous harbour?

A short walk from the hotel, the Museum of Contemporary Art was established to fulfill the museum aspect of the visionary bequest of Australian expatriate artist John Power (1881 – 1943).
