Paul & Colette Enjoying A Harbour Bridge Rumble Trike Tour
We had a great time on our bridges trike ride. Steven, our tour guide, was very informative and we got to see Sydney sights we hadn't seen for ages. It was a great way to spend a Sunday morning, and we would thoroughly recommend it.
The Sydney Harbour Bridge is one of Sydney's two most famous landmarks, the other being the Opera House. Completed in 1932, the construction of the bridge - known locally as "The coathanger" - was an economic feat as well as an engineering triumph. Prior to the bridge being built, the only links between the city centre in the south and the residential north were by ferry or by a 20 kilometre (12½ mile) road route that involved five bridge crossings.The Sydney Harbour Bridge, which is known locally as the "Coat Hanger", took eight years to build, including the railway line.
