The south-east pylon contains a lookout and museum but, unfortunately, I wasn’t able to find the entrance. As far as I could see it’s not clearly advertised how to get there. If I’d had access to the internet I would have been able to look it up. Apparently there are 200 steps up to the pylon lookout and along the way you pass through 3 levels of exhibits that detail the history and construction of the bridge. The view would be amazing but even better would be the bridge climb which gives spectacular views of Sydney.
Cannons at Dawes Point Park – there are 5 cannons left on the site of Sydney’s first fortified position. They were manned until 1916 when they were removed for the construction of the bridge.
