I have been here several times. It is always immaculately kept and well looked after. A beautiful memorial and no one should visit Labuan without going here.

Seven people work at keeping the grounds up and we met the head groundsman who was prepared to be helpful in helping us locate particular graves. Over 3,000 graves are here, laid out row on row. Most of those who... More

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

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
