Hi can you recommend a climbing plant in Sydney for privacy lattice above existing fence 2m high 15m long?

Hi. We have a timber fence line 2m high 15m long along a laneway that requires further privacy screening. We are thinking of erecting some lattice above it with some climbing plants to achieve this. We are based in Sydney and get full northern sun. Can you recommend some ideas on suitable plants and maintenance tips? Thanks Josh
