A very well tended cemetery. Peaceful and not full of tourists. A friendly reception received from the man in charge

Labuan Island is where the Japanese surrendered all of Borneo in 1945. The War Memorial and Cemetary there is resting place for over 2,200 allied dead of the Borneo campaigns of WW II. It lies about 4 km from town (Victoria) on the Coast Road to the Airport. Taxis from town are only about 10 MYR (less than $3 USD).... More

Looking at all the graves you get an understanding of how great a sacrifice the soldiers made to keep Labuan's independence and freedom. Very peaceful place. A good memorial. Walk among the graves and read the names and know that their families had to do without them because of war.

Strolled up from Tiara and there was row upon row of graves. I walked through the gates into this place of memories. Beautifully kept lawns and plagues a real credit to the gardeners and maintenance teams. So glad I came.

Labuan is a tax free city but other than that it is a place for reflecting on the nature of war. I visited the war memorial on the island which is a few kilometres from town centre. After walking for half an hour you hit upon a green piece of land where thousands of soldiers were buried there. The place,... More

Many of those buried here were killed during the Japanese invasion of Borneo. There are also men from the local forces of North Borneo, Sarawak and Brunei who were killed on war service who are honored here as well. This war memorial is beautifully maintained and very peaceful. I was moved to tears when reading the grave markers. It was... More

Nothing much actually,unless if your visit falls on War Memorial day where the Australian Government holds an annually ceremony to commemorate the fall of the soldiers during the Second World War defending Borneo, who were mostly of Australian origins. Well kept Memorial. place to find peace. Not a cemetery but just a memorial site

The memorial is a war cemetery where the remains of many Australian., British, Indian ,some USA and other service people who died in Japanese POW camps and on the Sandakan death march, are buried. There are a large number of grave markers, of which many have inscriptions like " A soldier of the 1941 - 1945 war, Known Unto God",... More
