The Samoan capital of Apia serves as the first port of call for most visitors, and it plays home to a number of historic sites, a laid-back seaside promenade, and a range of hotels and restaurants keeping tourists entertained.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Apia: Lalomanu Beach (in Lalomanu) and To Sua Ocean Trench (in Lotofaga). And it doesn't end there: contemplate the waterfront views at Palolo Deep Marine Reserve, take in the dramatic scenery at Sopoaga Falls, take a memorable tour with Tours, and get a new perspective on things with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

To find more things to do, photos, maps, and other tourist information, read Apia day trip planning tool .

Melbourne, Australia to Apia is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You'll lose 3 hours traveling from Melbourne to Apia due to the time zone difference. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sat) so you can travel to Savai'i.
