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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at USS Arizona Memorial and Battleship Missouri Memorial. Visit Waikiki Beach and Lanikai Beach for some beach relaxation. Step out of Honolulu to go to Kailua and see Kailua Beach Park, which is approximately 32 minutes away. There's lots more to do: browse the different shops at Ala Moana Center, look for all kinds of wild species at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, and examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.

Sydney, Australia to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You'll gain 20 hours traveling from Sydney to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from Sydney in August, with highs in Honolulu at 36°C and lows at 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Thu) to allow time to travel to Lahaina.
