Popularly known as the "Coat-hanger" for its arch-based design, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of Australia's best known landmarks. It is also one of the world's longest spanning-arch bridges and was opened to the public in March 1932, following nine years of construction. Bridge climbing is a popular activity in 1998 and offers both tourists and locals a fantastic experience to ascend the bridge's arches and enjoy the spectacular views of Sydney. Another highlight of the bridge is the Pylon Lookout at the south eastern end, which features an exhibition about the bridge to visitors and also offers a breathtaking view of the cityscape. Being one of the most-photographed attractions in Australia, a visit to the Sydney Harbour Bridge is a must for all photography enthusiasts as well as travellers sight-seeing in Sydney.
