Visitor tries to climb Opera House's sails

THE term "tourism drawcard" took on a whole new meaning for Sydney's Opera House on Monday when an over-eager visitor attempted to climb the building's iconic sails.

The 20-year-old Swedish national was arrested after he was spotted by security guards about 1.40am.

He was charged with trespass under the Sydney Opera House Trust Act 1961 and will front court on November 2.
