Honolulu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Bring the kids along to Diamond Head State Monument and Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. Venture out of the city with trips to Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay) and Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach). Next up on the itinerary: browse the exhibits of USS Arizona Memorial, kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, and contemplate the long history of Iolani Palace.

For where to stay, other places to visit, maps, and other tourist information, use the Honolulu vacation planner.

Gold Coast, Australia to Honolulu is an approximately 14.5-hour combination of train and flight. You can also fly; or do a combination of bus and flight.

Lihue, Kauai

Lihue ©
Lihue or Līhue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Family-friendly places like Poipu Beach Park and Kauai Museum will thrill your kids. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lihue: Hanalei Beach (in Hanalei), Na Pali Coast State Park (in Wainiha) and Waimea Canyon State Park (in Waimea). There's much more to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, paddle through the water with a kayaking and canoeing tour, steep yourself in history at Kilohana, and admire the sheer force of Opaekaa Falls.

To see maps, reviews, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Lihue online tour itinerary planner .

Getting from Honolulu to Lihue by flight takes about 2.5 hours. In May, daily temperatures in Lihue can reach 32°C, while at night they dip to 25°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Tue) to allow enough time to travel to Honolulu.
