Experience Hawaii

Honolulu, located on the southeast coast of Oahu, is the gateway to the Islands of Hawaii from Australia. Honolulu is the perfect place to unwind and explore what Hawaii has to offer. Take a car hire drive to the famous Waikiki Beach, a playground for surfers and beach goers.

Indulge in some of the best snorkeling in the world at Hanauma Bay, found on the southeastern side of the island, and make sure to stop by Diamond Head, one of the most famous volcanic craters in the world. Why stop there? Travel further west and visit the historic site of Pearl Harbor.

The Big Island

The Big Island has two main airports; Kona and Hilo. Kona Airport is approximately 20 minutes north of Kailua-Kona, where diving is an unforgettable experience. Hilo, located on the eastern coast of the island, is very close to the airport. And it's only a 40-minute drive to the Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park where Kilauea Volcano has been erupting into the Pacific Ocean for over 30 years!


Maui is Hawaii’s second largest island and is the perfect place to see some of Hawaii’s most pristine beaches and untouched scenery. Collect your hire car from Kahului Airport and drive the magical Hana Highway to one of the many national parks, waterfalls and secluded areas for your ultimate Hawaii experience.


Molokai is known as the 'friendly island'. The airport is situated almost the centre of the island with roads accessing national parks and glorious beaches. It's a great island to do a helicopter tour or even deep sea fishing for Pacific Blue Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna and Mahi Mahi.


The most stunning island is Kauai. Nicknamed "the Garden Isle", Kauai is covered in a tropical rainforest and is home to the dramatic Na Pali coastline. Lihue is the main airport into Kauai, located at the halfway point between the north and the south.
