Volcanoes have played an important role in shaping the Earth, and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park shows visitors the process in action.
Explore Hawaii Volcanoes National Park's surroundings by going to Naalehu (South Point Complex, Papakōlea Green Sand Beach, &more). There's much more to do: trek along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, stroll through Kipuka Puaulu (Bird Park) Trail, take in the dramatic natural features at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku), and contemplate the geological forces at Kīlauea.

To see photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park trip site.

Perth, Australia to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is an approximately 23-hour combination of flight and car. You'll gain 18 hours traveling from Perth to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park due to the time zone difference. Expect somewhat warmer weather when traveling from Perth in September: highs in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park hover around 35°C, while lows dip to 25°C. On the 2nd (Fri), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can drive to Captain Cook.
