In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Visit USS Arizona Memorial and Iolani Palace for their historical value. Battleship Missouri Memorial and USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, examine the collection at US Army Museum of Hawaii, take in the dramatic scenery at Manoa Falls, and identify plant and animal life at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.

Sydney, Australia to Honolulu is an approximately 13-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Australian Eastern Standard Time (New South Wales) to Hawaii Standard Time is minus 20 hours. While traveling from Sydney, expect somewhat warmer days and much hotter nights in Honolulu, ranging from highs of 36°C to lows of 28°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Thu) to allow time to travel to Lahaina.

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
On the 2nd (Fri), examine the collection at Hale Ho'ike'ike at the Bailey House and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Ka'anapali Beach. Keep things going the next day: appreciate the history behind Lahaina Jodo Mission, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Lahaina United Methodist Church, then take an in-depth tour of Baldwin Home Museum, then make a trip to Lahaina Banyan Court, and finally tour the pleasant surroundings at Napili Beach.

To see other places to visit, where to stay, maps, and other tourist information, read our Lahaina trip planner .

Traveling by flight from Honolulu to Lahaina takes 3.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and ferry; or do a combination of flight and bus. In October, daily temperatures in Lahaina can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 26°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 3rd (Sat) so you can travel back home.
