It's worth a walk to this garden from the international airport terminal to honor those who died in the bloody battle for Guadalcanal, and specifically for Henderson Field. There are monuments and rows of trees, some explanatory plaques, and not much else.

This is a lovely memorial park at the airport. No need to go out of your way to visit but if you are at the airport and would like a bit of fresh air this is a nice place to enjoy and pay your respects.

Not a very inspiring memorial to those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Basically a garden of trees in carefully planted rows with plaques dedicated not so much to individuals but from individuals or organisations.

The visit to Guadalcanal was one of the main reasons we had booked on the Sun Princess. A Tour booked on the Wharf upon our arrival with GTS included the American War Memorial, Henderson Field and Bloody Ridge. We did not know what to expect...More

This place is tiny. It will take the whole of 5 minutes if you read every word. I respect the reason it's here but it's not a great tourist spot

Located at the airport, this memorial is ensconced in a lovely grove of trees. It is well kept and easily accessible (right outside the entrance to the airport). Take a wander around and pay homage to our servicemen who defended our freedom.

Some areas are maintained and others are not. Very moving , sad and reflects a lot of history from WW2

The Solomon Islands Memorial Garden is right beside Honiara Henderson Field Airport. There are plaques commemorating soldiers who fought in the Guadalcanal wars. It's a pleasant serene place, but not kept as good as it could be (as per much of Honiara!).
