    Destination Information

    Tulagi

    Tulagi was once the capital of the Solomon Islands as declared by the British Empire. During WWII it was taken over by the Japanese forces as their military base. After the war, the capital was moved to Honiara, and since then this once bustling area of the Solomon Islands has reverted to a remote and quiet island paradise. However, remnants of infrastructure from its imperial past and the relics of its role in WWII remain. 

     

    Honiara

    Honiara is located in the Guadalcanal Province. It is the capital of the Solomon Islands and the gateway for international visitors to the rest of this beautiful tropical island nation. 

    Before the Second World War, Honiara did not exist as the town we know today. This bustling municipality was developed around U.S. military headquarters established during the Second World War. U.S. presence in the area boosted Honiara’s infrastructure, which triggered the British Government to name it the country’s capital after the war in 1952. The Solomon Islands was a protectorate of Britain from 1893 until independence was declared in 1975. This elected urban centre still thrives and is considered the primary hub for business and commerce for the whole country. 

    During WWII and the U.S. occupation of the area, American and Japanese troops clashed in Honiara during the Guadalcanal Campaign and the Battle of Henderson Field. America emerged as victorious and subsequently set up base in the area for the rest of the war. As a result, the area hosts a swathe of WWII sites, including abandoned military equipment and war machines both above and below the surface.
