The Tea Room and Harbour Bridge Pylon Lookout

Read Pt. 1 // Pt. 2 // Pt. 3 

On our last day in Sydney, my friend Christine and I had booked high tea at The Tea Room in the Queen Victoria Building. This building is absolutely stunning—filled with towering staircases and stained glass windows. The Tea Room is located in an almost hidden corner of the building, on the very top floor. When you enter, you're greeted by the kindest host and shown to your table. We were lucky to be sat near the window, where we could look out over Sydney while we enjoyed our time in the most beautiful tea room. The tea itself was completely delicious, and they kept the sandwiches and hot water coming. Overall, we felt like royalty!

After our luxurious lunch, we made our way over to the Harbour Bridge Pylon Lookout. This is a great way to climb the bridge and get those spectacular Sydney views without spending hundreds of dollars. For $15, we were able to climb plenty of stairs and get a 360° view of the city. The tower where the Pylon Lookout is located is full of informative displays that share information about the bridge and its construction.
