Getting to Hawaii from Australia and New Zealand is easy. Simply choose from daily direct flights into Honolulu Airport or choose from a host of year-round cruises and enjoy Hawaii from the water.
For those of us who'd prefer to avoid the hassle of flying where possible, choose cruise. Holiday Hawaii with the comfort of an unchanging room, hundreds of potential friends, nightly entertainment, more food than you could possible consume and daily excursions and adventure. Glide between the islands over calm turquoise waters and take the holiday at your own pace. Find our Hawaii cruises here.
Direct flights to Honolulu run from Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland several times a week and will take roughly 10 hours from departure. These flights are all operated by respected airlines including Virgin Australia, Qantas, Hawaiian Airlines and Air New Zealand. Fiji Airways also fly from Australia to Hawaii with a stopover in Nadi; this can be a great option when travelling with kids or avoiding the long haul.
Honolulu International Airport is located just 40 minutes from Waikiki Beach. Due to the inconvenience (and expense) of booking a taxi and airport shuttle from the airport, we recommend booking your hotel transfers with the trusted service provider suggested by your hotel. Simply add the transfers option to your quote or booking and we’ll look after the rest.
If you’re planning on leaving Oahu to visit some of Hawaii’s other beautiful islands, you’ll have to book inter-island flights (these are operated by Hawaiian Airlines and Mokulele Airlines). Just let us know at your time of booking and we can include this in your itinerary.
