Famously known as the 'coathanger', the Sydney Harbour Bridge is an iconic landmark that is a central aspect of the city's identity.

With a construction time of six years, the bridge was officially opened in March of 1932 and since then, has been a prominent transport thoroughfare between the north and south harbours.
