Flights from Melbourne to Honiara
Honiara, the capital of the Solomon Islands, has its own charms as a vibrant and bustling city located on the banks of Guadalcanal Island. Flights to Honiara arrive at Honiara International Airport, about 10 kilometres from the centre and most Honiara accommodation. Allow for additional time to get to your Honiara hotel as travel time is highly traffic dependent.
Honiara offers a variety of things to do without pretension or fanfare. For history buffs, Honiara is peppered with both American and Japanese World War II history with some of the fiercest battles taking place in proximity to the town and many battle sites remaining untouched. From rusting jeeps and tanks to large guns that had been used and left as monuments, the Solomon Islands National Museum and memorials including the Japanese War Memorial detail the rich history. During the day the bustling central market is the epicenter of local activity with an array of fresh produce, fish, oils, and unique handicrafts, where you can experience true Solomon Islands living.
