Lihue or Līhue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Kids will enjoy Hanalei Beach and Kalapaki Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lihue: Hanalei Valley Lookout (in Hanalei), Na Pali Coast State Park (in Wainiha) and Waimea (Polihale State Park & Waimea Canyon State Park). Next up on the itinerary: get interesting insight from Tours, admire the sheer force of Wailua Falls, take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, and contemplate the long history of Kilohana.

To find ratings, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Lihue trip itinerary website .

Sydney, Australia to Lihue is an approximately 13-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. You'll gain 20 hours traveling from Sydney to Lihue due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Sydney in July, plan for a bit warmer days in Lihue, with highs around 34°C, while nights are warmer with lows around 27°C. You'll have a few hours on the 14th (Tue) to wrap things up before traveling to Honolulu.

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Kids will enjoy Diamond Head State Monument and Waikiki Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park, Waimea Bay, & more) and Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach). There's much more to do: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, get into the urban bustle at Polynesian Cultural Center, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, and see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.
