This is one of the must-visit attractions of Labuan because of its significant place in the Second World War. A few thousands war victims were buried here and their sacrifices remembered. They were made up of Australian, British, Indian and even Brunei citizens who died to defend the country against the Japanese army. The memorial are kept in immaculate condition... More

Words cannot describe the feeling that overwhelms you here, so many lives lost for our tomorrow. Well worth a visit to pay your respects.

My great uncle is buried here, initially as an unknown soldier but now in a marked grave. A beautiful place to reflect on the courage and resilience of our troops and also a reminder of the atrocities of WW1. It is also a great example of how two countries have worked together to honour and preserve the memory of those... More

The cemetery is set in spacious and immaculately kept gardens. You are struck first by the sheer size of the area (containing 2294 graves), then by the endless lists of names of all the dead, from Australia, Britain and India, mostly. Perhaps the most moving aspect is contrasting the thousands of graves of unidentified soldiers (shocking in itself) with the... More

A sense of tranquility washes over you as you walk through the gardens. How well-kept and how well-manicured are the memorial landscape that it breathes a sense of calmness around you. As you gaze at the plaques remembering those who perish for us to be free as we are now, there is a sense of mixed sadness and peace that... More

I personally like to visit memorial parks. It gives me a sense of time and people with names have sacrificed for the piece of ground that I am standing on. Like most War Memorials, the grounds are impeccably kept. A must visit for history buffs.

Having read Lynette Silver's books on Borneo's war history, this was a must do experience. We took poppies to place on the headstones of some of the graves and gave koalas to the wonderful people who make this such a simple yet beautiful place. Having been to Kundasung on our last visit this was the natural follow on. A shame... More
