Tour Description

Experience the magic of a Perth city sunset as you’re suspended 72m above the Swan River on the Matagarup Bridge! Combine this with a 5km urban hike along the foreshore and a delicious dinner at The Camfield and you have yourself a very special evening!

The Matagarup Bridge Climb is no ordinary walk up a bridge – this is a true climb! You will be required to undertake a physically demanding trek up 314 steps on a 45-degree angle and shimmy, slide and squeeze through tight spaces to reach the SkyView Deck – an open-air viewing platform 72 metres above the Swan River.

After we enjoy our afternoon meander along the foreshore we’ll check-in at Zip+Climb HQ before we undertake a safety induction and are fitted with a full body harness, helmet and a bridge latch device with tether to ensure your safety at all times. Once you are clipped onto the bridge, the real adventure begins! This is a challenging climb and not for the faint-hearted!

Your professional guide will escort you up the eastern side of the main arch to the midway point, allowing for the group to catch a collective breath. You will be entertained with interesting stories of the Swan River area as you are ascending the bridge.

The second part of the climb will take you to the summit. The SkyView Deck is an open-air viewing platform, complete with Perth’s first glass bottom platform, suspended 72 metres above the river. 

You will be 100% enclosed, allowing you to safely untether and walk around the deck to enjoy the 360 degree panoramic views of Perth. 

After we descend the bridge, we’ll head to the Camfield for a tasty dinner and drink of something cold and crisp – You’ve sure earnt it!

As we hike back along the foreshore we’ll admire the Perth city lights come to life – they don’t call it the ‘city of lights’ for nothing!

This experience offers you the opportunity to view Perth in an entirely new perspective.
