Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Venture out of the city with trips to Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). There's lots more to do: appreciate the history behind USS Arizona Memorial, take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center, and explore the galleries of Iolani Palace.

For other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, you can read our Honolulu trip planning website .

Melbourne, Australia to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Traveling from Melbourne to Honolulu, you'll gain 20 hours due to the time zone difference. While traveling from Melbourne, expect a bit warmer days and much hotter nights in Honolulu, ranging from highs of 33°C to lows of 25°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Fri) early enough to travel to Hilo.
