The Pylon Lookout™offers spectacular views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, the harbour and the city. Displays on all levels, and a short documentary video, provide a unique insight into the past and present of Sydney's celebrated Harbour Bridge.

JJC Bradfield realised the dream of crossing the glittering Harbour when he steered the Sydney Harbour Bridge to its completion on 19 March 1932.

The Pylon Lookout™ tells the story of his achievement and incorporates items from the Bradfield Museum, originally located in the South West Pylon from 1932. There are 200 steps to the top of the Pylon where you can lookout onto the harbour and view the spectacular Sydney sights.

The Roads and Traffic Authority (RTA), is responsible for maintaining the Sydney Harbour Bridge, which is part of the National Estate.

In 1998, the RTA completed the preparation of the Sydney Harbour Bridge Conservation Management Plan, and in 1999 the Bridge was listed on the State Heritage Register as an item of exceptional cultural significance.

The conservation policies in this plan are being implemented by the RTA and BridgeClimb.
