This was a lovely tribute to soldiers who gave their lives for others.

This was a simple but lovely tribute to soldiers who gave their lives for others. It is easy to get to as it is beside the airport.

If you're at the airport and have time to kill then have a look at the various memorials near the carpark and look for the trees all in rows at the Memorial Garden. Worth a quick look.

Seeing the memorial stones for all these men brings the reality of war and death to life. So sad....

Travel Solomons provided an excellent guide to all the sites of the WW2 Guadal Canal campaign. You could feel the story come to life.

Having visited on an important anniversary the memorial was particularly relevant and solemn and important. Maintenance was good and very well presented in a harsh environment. Take your time and savour all this monument has to offer including great views.

The walk to the gardens is half the adventure of the gardens - beautiful rainforest and a little traditional village - the gardens themselves are small but well worth a visit

This memorial garden, located next to the Airport, is a beautiful reminder of SIers who served in the war, as well as the U.S. presence during wartime. A must-do if you are at the airport.

Visited this memorial on the final day of our Battlefield study tour. Very moving to wander around the gardens and reflect on our week in the Solomons and what occurred during WWII. Very close to the airport so can walk to it from there. Good way to finish the trip.

This small well kept memorial garden is lined with trees and small plaques honoring the heroes of the Second World War. There are no graves in the site. It is located right next to the airport that was the much fought over Henderson Field in WWII. Bloody Ridge, which is nearby is much more filled with pathos, although it only... More
