The man, dressed
in dark clothing, white shoes, and sunglasses, took a taxi to
the bridge and climbed up just after 9 a.m (2300 GMT Thursday)
before perching himself on the Sydney landmark with his arms
crossed, Australian media said.
The man, whose motive was unknown, climbed down about two hours
later. He was arrested and taken to Royal North Shore Hospital
for assessment, Seven Network television said.
