Visiting from Sydney to Orlando

Orlando Skyline

Orlando is truly a special place to visit. Boasting spectacular theme parks, wondrous nature attractions and interesting cultural institutions, there’s never a shortage of awesome things to do. Home to the "happiest place on earth", not only are the Disney theme parks and Universal studios the main attractions, downtown has a lot to offer. Lovely tree-lined neighbourhoods, a rich performing arts and museum scene, fantastic gardens and nature preserves, fabulous food, great craft cocktails and a delightfully slower pace less the manic crowds. Outside the theme parks and Walt Disney World, be sure to visit Harry P Leu Gardens, Orlando Museum of Art and kick back and relax at Lakeridge Winery. There’s plenty to enjoy in Orlando.
