The capital of Tonga and the seat of the island nation's royal family, Nuku'alofa was first seen by Western eyes in 1777, when legendary Captain James Cook arrived in the area.
Get a sense of the local culture at Free Church of Tonga and Centenary Church. Visiting Anahulu Cave - The Underground Swimming Pool and Ha'atafu Beach will get you outdoors. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Mapu'a 'a Vaea Blowholes, steep yourself in history at Captain Cook's Landing Place, make a trip to Royal Tombs, and pause for some serene contemplation at Basilica of St Anthony of Padua.

To plan Nuku'alofa vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Melbourne, Australia to Nuku'alofa is an approximately 10-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 3 hours traveling from Melbourne to Nuku'alofa. When traveling from Melbourne in June, plan for somewhat warmer days and much hotter nights in Nuku'alofa: temperatures range from 29°C by day to 23°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 7th (Fri) early enough to travel to Neiafu.
