Arnold Schwarzenegger is to tour Australia later this year (13) giving a series of motivational talks.

The actor/politician will appear as a guest speaker during Jamie MCIntyre's 21st Century Financial Education Summits, speaking at events in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney in June (13).

The former bodybuilder will talk about his diverse career and give tips and advice to attendees.

He says in a statement, "Australia is one of my favourite countries in the world and the people there are always so friendly and welcoming. Sydney will always be special for me as it's the city where I won the title of Mr Olympia for the final time!"

Event organiser MCIntyre adds, "Arnold embodies everything that the Financial Education Summit is all about. He is motivated, inspirational, an achiever against all odds. How incredible that a young man from a small village in Austria could by the age of 21 have moved to Los Angeles and been crowned Mr Universe and within five years become the greatest bodybuilder of all time and within 10 years a millionaire from business and within 20 years the world's biggest movie star and 36 years later elected Governor of California."

The talks will take place on 12-14 June (13).
