In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach), Turtle Bay Beach (in Kahuku) and Laie (Malaekahana State Recreation Area & Polynesian Cultural Center). The adventure continues: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls, stroll through Waikiki Beach, and contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

For where to stay, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Honolulu trip itinerary planner.

Melbourne, Australia to Honolulu is an approximately 13.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Melbourne to Honolulu is minus 20 hours. Expect much hotter temperatures when traveling from Melbourne in September; daily highs in Honolulu reach 36°C and lows reach 28°C.
