  • Lots of local plants and flowers to be seen while visiting the memorial to those lost here during the battle. One of several free and easy things to do on the island.  more »
  • An unconventional memorial in the sense that it was preferred trees to crosses or other religious signs with commemorative plaques in honor of World War II fighters. A symbol of peace and confidence in the future, this memorial located right next to the international terminal at Honiara Airport deserves a little time.
