Australian visitors to the United States, for business or tourism, staying 90 days or less, do not need to obtain a visa. However an online travel authorisation needs to be obtained through ESTA, which is a quick, free internet application with authorisation received within a few minutes.
Now, because of its central location and tropical weather it has transformed into a lively town that is the activity capital of the Big Island. It is the city on the Big Island that is best equipped for tourism, but still retains the ‘old Hawaii’ feel with none of the high rises or large shopping centres the Waikiki has.
There are many shops and markets selling locally produced items and there is a good offering of restaurants. Relax and look at the waves crashing over the black lava rocks while sipping from a cup of the world-famous Kona coffee, or have some freshly caught ahi (tuna) at one of the seaside restaurants.
