Honolulu ©
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 Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea), Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). The adventure continues: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, tour the pleasant surroundings at Waikiki Beach, go for a walk through Diamond Head State Monument, and admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls.

To find maps, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Honolulu travel tool.

Melbourne, Australia to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. You'll gain 20 hours traveling from Melbourne to Honolulu due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Melbourne in March since evenings lows in Honolulu dip to 23°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) early enough to travel to Hilo.
