Hawaii, the 50th state of the USA comprises of eight islands; Six of them cater to tourism, Kauai, Maui, the Island of Hawaii, Molokai, Lanai and Oahu. Flights operate daily from our capital cities to Hawaii and with a journey time of about 10hrs from Brisbane, it makes it an easy to get to holiday destination.
Oahu, referring to “The Gathering Place,” is the third largest of the islands and the most visited. It’s home to the famous Waikiki Beach at Honolulu, Pearl Harbour, movie sets including Jurassic Park, laidback surf towns, multitudes of restaurants and shopping and a diverse population mix of east and west cultures.
Kauai is often called the “Garden Island,” because this oldest and northernmost island in the Hawaiian chain is covered in green valleys, mountains, jagged cliffs, century’s old tropical rainforests, rivers and cascading waterfalls. Many of the most spectacular views are seen from the air and there’s a myriad of outdoor and adventure activities to enjoy. Kayaking the Wailua River, hiking and ziplining are popular.
The small island of Molokai, only 16km at its widest point is home to the highest sea cliffs in the world and the longest continuous fringing reef. Here the residents continue to preserve their rural lifestyle thanks to their love of the land.
Lanai is the smallest inhabited island in Hawaii, and offers luxurious resorts where visitors can indulge in world-class amenities and championship-level golf, plus 4WD exploring.
The popular island of Maui boasts over 50km of beautiful beaches. On these world famous shores you’ll find white, black and red sand beaches full of surfing and windsurfing spots as well as some of the best beaches in the world to swim and snorkel.
The island of Hawaii (the Big Island) is known for its size and its volcanoes. Here you can travel through all but four of the world’s different climate zones ranging from wet tropical to polar tundra – a result of the shielding effect and elevations of the massive volcanoes Maunakea and Maunaloa. There’s molten lava to see at the Volcanoes National Park one day, lush valleys near the coast, the jet-black sands of Punaluu Beach and the snow-capped mountain Maunakea on others.
We can tailor packages to any and all of these islands to suit your interests and requirements. Flights and ferry rides can be organised if you would like to visit a couple of islands or if you’d simply like to head to Waikiki and relax on the golden sands we can advise which hotel would suit you best and make the necessary reservations.
