The first place you will notice as you leave the international arrival lounge at Honiara International Airport. Lines of candle tress beautifully lined in a very well kept garden where memories of the war dead are remembered with name plaques are placed at the bottom of each tree. A very cool site to sit, relax and enjoy the fresh easterly... More

Lovely place to visit and reflect on what happened here during the WWII. It is located right near the airport. There was an entrance fee of $10. The gravestones are beautifully set out and the whole place is very moving, making one feel sad as it brings to mind what happened in this place. So many young men lost their... More

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.

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!).

The Solomons islands Memorial garden is a nice place to visit and reflect on WW2, within walking distance from the international airport terminal, nice rows of vertical trees with plaques below.

This is a humble garden memorialising WWII soldiers and community organisations that sacrificed during the Campaign of Guadalcanal. Check in for your flight and walk across the front car park to the park. Beautiful shade with a few benches - definitely more comfortable waiting spot than is the hot and stuffy departure lounge. Free. Nothing fancy and by no means... More

As with all of the WWII memorials on Guadalcanal this place is steeped in history. The impact of the Japanese and subsequent American occupations remains on this island nation. I recommend visiting this and the other memorials on the island.

Located on the hill above Honiara, the memorial is a reminder of the dark days of the second world war. Beautifully laid out and maintained, with excellent views over Honoriaria Bay.

This is a beautiful tribute to our nation's youth, as well as those from other nations who gave their lives to preserve a way of life in he Western World. But perhaps more importantly emphasizes the cost of war. It is located at Henderson Field, the spot the Battle of Guadalcanal was all about.
