It is the fall season in Australia and soon it will be winter. Australians who like to getaway for the winter holidays or vacations often choose a place that is full of history and traditions.

The island of Hawaii is summery, this time of year and many Australians who are looking for an affordable getaway that is rich in tradition often choose the Hawaiian island of Oahu for their winter vacation.

Tropical sunsets, rich sandy white beaches, lush gardens and pretty ponds await you in this tropical paradise. Can you imagine walking the same route that was taken by the Queens and Kings of this tropical paradise?

Ainahau Estate, once stood in Waikiki. It was the home of the last Princess of Hawaii, Princess Kaiulani, who received it as a baptismal gift from another princess of the island. Her father, Achibald Cleghorn, a scotsmen, planted coconut palms as well as many other varieties of flowers, trees, and palms.

Sadly to say the estate was demolished in 1955 to make way for hotels and residences. However, Australian tourists, or any other tourist for that matter, can stay at the luxurious Embassy Suites Waikiki, the only all-suite resort on the island of Oahu and explore the many historical and scenic spots all over the island.

Embassy Suites Waikiki offers one or two bedroom spacious suites with two full baths, complimentary full cooked-to-order brekkie each morning as well as nightly beverage reception with Hawaiian entertainment, a few nights every week. The hotel also offers complimentary high-speed internet access, air conditioning, a wet bar, pull out couch, microwave, mini refrigerator and a coffee machine. It also offers complimentary 24 hour fitness and centers and features a swimming pool with Pakini pool bar, children's pool, and a whirlpool spa. Just imagine waking up to the beautiful sunrise, the fabulous breakfasts, and a fun filled day of exploring the island of Oahu.

Some of the adventures include: swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, visiting the Waikiki Beach Walk - Waikiki's famous shopping, dining and entertainment district where you can dine on traditional and international foods. The Waikiki Beach Walk practically surrounds the Embassy Suites Waikiki. Here you will indulge in the tastes and sounds of the island. Enjoy an outdoor entertainment plaza with over 40 shops to satisfy your shopaholic binge!

This breathtaking hotel is situated less than an hour away from all attractions. You can also tour the many museums located on the island or perhaps stop by Diamond Head. Diamond Head is a volcanic crater that is 2.24 kilometers high. Once at the top, you will get a panoramic view of the island of Oahu.

Whether you explore the underwater beauty while snorkeling, hiking up Diamond Head, shopping in Honolulu's Chinatown, enjoying a luau on the beach, or swaying to the beat of the ancient Hawaiian drums, your trip to the island of Oahu will be remembered for a lifetime.
