Aussie travellers can get a full-rounded sensory experience in L.A., by exploring and discovering the City of Angeles through their sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch. We have rounded up the below highlights from each sensory for Aussies to truly live and breathe all things L.A.

The world-renowned Los Angeles Philharmonic is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year. Aussie travellers are invited to join a free, day-long festival called LA Phil 100, on Sunday 30 September. The day will include an open streets event than spans from the front of the Walt Disney Concert Hall, all the way to the Hollywood Bowl.
TASTE – Street Food Cinema
Los Angeles is home to the food truck trend and as such, Street Food Cinema is so much more than just an outdoor movie experience. Aussie travellers are able to experience a huge al fresco picnic, with the event featuring nearly 20 tasty food trucks, including Astro Doughnuts and Fried Chicken. Open every Saturday from 28 April to 27 October.
