A memorial garden for defence force personnel but also others, trees laid out and marked with most plaques intact

Worth visiting if you want to know a little bit about those who served during the battle of Guadalcanal. If you are stuck at Honiara international airport and want to check the surroundings, this one is only a stone throw away.

If you have time after checking in for your flight - check out these gardens. A much nicer place to sit a while than the terminal. Although do not forget to go up onto the terminal's observation deck.

Serene garden next to the airport, with commemorative plaques dedicated to those who lost there lives in the Solomons during WWII.

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

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...More
