Honolulu, Oahu

— 4 nights

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay), Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). There's still lots to do: stroll through Waikiki Beach, explore the activities along Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center.

Perth, Australia to Honolulu is an approximately 19.5-hour flight. The time zone changes from Australian Western Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, which is usually a -18 hour difference. Traveling from Perth in July, things will get much warmer in Honolulu: highs are around 36°C and lows about 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Hilo.

Hilo, Island of Hawaii

— 11 nights

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 (Kīlauea, Devastation Trail, &more), Kailua-Kona (Swim with Dolphins, Dolphin & Whale Watching, &more) and Kona Coffee Living History Farm (in Captain Cook). Next up on the itinerary: admire the sheer force of Akaka Falls State Park, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Puukohola National Historic Park, kick back and relax at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area, and admire the natural beauty at Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden.

Plan my trip to Hilo with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

The Aloha State
An archipelago of hundreds of volcanic islands located in a geological hot spot in the middle of Pacific, Hawaii offers diverse natural scenery and a warm tropical climate. The six major islands open to tourism draw visitors with their sun-drenched public beaches and craggy natural trails. Thanks to their mid-Pacific location, the islands boast a vibrant native culture influenced by both North America and Asia. You can spend your vacation basking in the modern comforts of the big hotels, but to experience the true spirit of these islands, remember that real Hawaiians live outdoors. Encounter nature by surfing, swimming, fishing, and picnicking, or join a guided tour across the ancient lava flows to the top of Hawaii's rugged volcanic peaks.
