BridgeClimb welcomes Daybreak Down Under with a climb to the top of Sydney Harbour Bridge
9:59am Monday 14th November 2011 in Travel
Scores of lucky competition winners, plus their companions, from breakfast show Daybreak, have scaled to the summit of the Sydney Harbour Bridge for an unforgettable welcome to Australia.
As one of the largest groups to climb the Bridge since Oprah and her Ultimate Viewers broke the world record in 2010, the winners were thrilled to be introduced to Sydney by undertaking such a quintessential Australian experience.
The campaign 'Daybreak Down Under' was launched on ITV's Daybreak as part of Tourism Australia's 'There's nothing like Australia' campaign.
Daybreak host, Kate Garraway and crew climbed alongside the winners to reach the summit of the Bridge for a memorable TV moment.
"I don't know what view you guys woke up to this morning, but how is this for a view! One of the world's most amazing experiences!" Kate Garraway said as she reached the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
"We were honoured to host Daybreak and the 45 lucky competition winners, plus their companions at the summit of the Bridge on a stunning Sydney morning," Edward Owens, of BridgeClimb said.
"We are also thrilled that the climb has demonstrated yet again our capacity to cater for large groups of any size.
"I'd like to acknowledge the work of all BridgeClimb team members in crafting the experience of a lifetime for the Daybreak Climbers, and many thanks also to Tourism Australia for providing this fantastic opportunity to local tourism operators throughout the country."
BridgeClimb is considered a 'must-do' tourist attraction in Sydney, with over 2.75 million people from over 137 countries having climbed the Bridge since it opened in 1998.
Climbers can climb to the summit of this world famous icon on The Bridge Climb, The Discovery Climb or for those who are short on time, The Express Climb.
