Current bookings to be honoured and a sneak peak of new packages.

BridgeClimb Sydney has seen over 4 million climbers summit the landmark from over 140 countries since the opening on 1 October 1998 but last month, Aussies received the big news that the current operators of the Sydney Harbour Bridge climb were unsuccessful in its bid to renew its 20-year contract.

From 1 October 2018 Hammons Holdings will take over the reigns as the new concessionaire of the popular tourist activity and we’ve got the scoop on what you can expect in the transition period.

Hammons Holdings, the operator of Scenic World in the Blue Mountains, has said that guests can expect an improvement on current offerings and over time, innovative and extended experiences of the Sydney Harbour Bridge will also be made available.

It guarantees that all bookings for the period from 1 October 2018 made at the presently agreed date, time and price with BridgeClimb will be honoured.

Hammons Holdings CEO, David Hammon said: "We have asked that all tour guide operators confirm with us their existing bookings and reservations for guided walks and other activities on the Sydney Harbour Bridge for the period commencing on 1 October 2018. The team at Hammons Holdings will be working through all bookings and tour operators can rest assured that we are busily working around the clock to ensure a smooth handover."

Guests can also expect to see at least change in name for the current climbing experiences and details will be released closer to the change over date of any package changes.
