Climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge does not need to be a once in a lifetime experience.

The majesty of Sydney Harbour is a sight that usually leaves people wanting to come back for more, but one man has taken this to the extreme.

In 1998, Lloyd Poulton decided he would climb the famous Harbour Bridge and since then he has repeated the feat a staggering 50 times – even though he is now 84 years old.

This means that he has climbed more than 65,000 steps and walked around 90 km on the landmark, but he insists that it never gets old and the feeling of looking down onto Sydney is always worth it.

Mr Poulton told the Herald Sun: “People who play golf don’t just play it once, do they?

“I just find the experience very pleasant and it’s always been a fascinating structure to me, easily the number one attraction in Sydney.”

Visitors to Sydney can scale the Bridge while in the city and have their photograph taken with the Opera House providing a fitting backdrop.
