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 (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park). There's much more to do: explore the galleries of USS Arizona Memorial, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, step aboard Battleship Missouri Memorial, and browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center.

To find reviews, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip itinerary planning website.

Newcastle, Australia to Honolulu is an approximately 15-hour flight. Traveling from Newcastle to Honolulu, you'll gain 20 hours due to the time zone difference. While traveling from Newcastle, expect a bit warmer days and much hotter nights in Honolulu, ranging from highs of 36°C to lows of 27°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Tue) early enough to travel to Hilo.

America's Wettest City

One of the island of Hawaii's major towns, Hilo contains a mix of Asian and Polynesian cultures and is known for its proximity to a national park encompassing two active volcanoes.
Explore Hilo's surroundings by going to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (Kilauea Iki Trailhead, Devastation Trail, &more). There's much more to do: take in nature's colorful creations at Liliuokalani Gardens, take in the dramatic scenery at Rainbow Falls, look for gifts at Hilo Coffee Mill, and admire the majestic nature at Akaka Falls State Park.

To find ratings, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Hilo driving holiday planner.

Crown Jewel of Maui

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.

On the 4th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, get interesting insight from Tours, and then wander the streets of Lahaina Front Street.
