Double the birthday fun on the Sydney Harbour Bridge’s 78th anniversary
Best friends Delilah Adamson and Christina Tesoriero today shared their 18th birthday celebrations with Australia’s Icon on the 78th anniversary of the SydneyHarbourBridge.
Delilah and Christina, from Maroubra in Sydney were thrilled to share their ‘coming of age’ with the SydneyHarbourBridge’s 78th birthday and celebrated the occasion by climbing to the summit with BridgeClimb.
The two best friends, who were born just three days apart in the same hospital, met at high school and have been inseparable ever since.
Delilah said, “We wanted to do something different for our 18th, something original, and it seemed so fitting that we share our special day with the Bridge. It will certainly be a birthday that we will remember forever”.
Their Climb group sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to Delilah, Christina and the SydneyHarbourBridge when they reached the peak, 134 meters above sea level.
The affectionately named ‘coathanger’ who has 60 years on the two girls today, opened on Saturday 19th March 1932. This allowed Sydney-siders to cross from the north shore directly into the heart of the city for the first time. The official opening day was a momentous occasion, drawing remarkable crowds to the city and the harbour foreshores.
Todd Coates, Managing Director of BridgeClimb said “Today we celebrate this engineering masterwork BridgeClimb is so privileged to share with the world. The annual celebration of the Bridge’s birthday reminds us of its cultural and historical significance for Sydney and we look forward to sharing many more birthdays to come with the SydneyHarbourBridge”.
This 78th anniversary is significant to BridgeClimb in particular as it marks the first Bridge birthday housed in the new Climb base and featuring the Bridge’s new Visitor Centre. The Visitor Centre is the first free and fully accessible vicinity that is dedicated to the people’s Bridge and includes a digital high definition cinema and a Bridge exhibition.
BridgeClimb shares this magnificent structure everyday with every Climber by leading them on an unforgettable journey on the Bridge, revealing its secrets, and showcasing the spectacular views of Sydney.
BridgeClimb offers three amazing adventures to the summit of the Bridge including The Bridge Climb, The Discovery Climb and our newest climb, The Express Climb. Climbs are available at dawn, day, twilight and at night which will captivate Climbers from beginning to end. For booking enquiries call (02) 8274 7777 or book online at www.bridgeclimb.com
