Afternoon all,

My wife and I will be in Sydney for a week in mid March. We're in our mid 30's and it's just the missus and me and we'll be wanting to build up a bit of a thirst for a cold one and are intending on doing the bridge climb. We just wondered if it's worth booking it well in advance - i.e. now and running the risk of doing it when it's a really bad rainy, foggy day or waiting until we can see what the weather is doing when we get to Sydney but then running the risk of not getting on a climb because it is sold out.

I appreciate that no-one has a crystal ball and that the world weather pattern is crazy - especially in Oz but can anyone tell me what weather to generally expect in Sydney for mid-March? Rainy, foggy?

Sorry to sound 'daggy' and I'll probably take a punt on it but any info/advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers for your help.

Hi Tony,
The locals will know better than me if you can wing it, but when we did it in December, it was a good job we'd booked in advance. March may not be as busy if the summer's on it's way out. Have you tried emailing the company that does it?

G'day Tony,
Book in advance and take pot luck on the weather.
It's pretty popular & often not possible to get a spot on short notice.
Anyway the weather is always "Perfect" in AUS.

Tricky one this Tony! As last weekend was one of the hottest weekend's on record (Which escalated into the terrible forest fires i'm sure u have heard of) and this past week, including today it has poured down none stop!!

Its probably a 50/50 chance you get the perfect weather.

If you book it in advance are you able to cancel the booking say 7 days before you are due to do the walk i.e. after checking the weather forecasts?

I wouldn't risk not booking it - March is still a popular time to be in Sydney so the bridge climb is likely to be busy. The first time I was in Sydney I missed out on the climb as it was booked up for the few days I was there (and that was in spring) so I booked in advance the next time. You would be pretty unlucky to have such bad weather that it would spoil it.
