Honolulu, Oahu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Explore hidden gems such as Koko Crater Railway Trail and Food Tours. There's still lots to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, admire all the interesting features of Diamond Head State Monument, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach.

To find more things to do, maps, ratings, and tourist information, use the Honolulu trip itinerary website .

Sydney, Australia to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour flight. The time zone changes from Australian Eastern Standard Time (New South Wales) to Hawaii Standard Time, which is usually a -20 hour difference. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from Sydney in April; daily highs in Honolulu reach 33°C and lows reach 25°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Mon) so you can travel to Hanalei.
