In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
When in Honolulu, make a side trip to see Kailua Beach Park in Kailua, approximately 32 minutes away. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, explore the galleries of USS Arizona Memorial, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls.

To find traveler tips and other tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip planner .

Melbourne, Australia to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 20 hours traveling from Melbourne to Honolulu. Expect a bit warmer weather when traveling from Melbourne in October: highs in Honolulu hover around 36°C, while lows dip to 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 28th (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Haleiwa.

Haleiwa

Haleiwa is a North Shore community and census-designated place (CDP) in the Waialua District of the island of Oahu, City and County of Honolulu. Venture out of the city with trips to Turtle Bay Beach (in Kahuku) and Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Sunset Beach Park, meet some fierce fish with a shark diving experience, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and admire the verdant scenery at Waimea Valley.

For traveler tips, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Haleiwa trip itinerary planning app .

Getting from Honolulu to Haleiwa by car takes about an hour. Other options: take a bus. Traveling from Honolulu in October, things will get slightly colder in Haleiwa: highs are around 32°C and lows about 23°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 31st (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
