Many Australians don't know about this part of our history. It is an extremely important place for people to visit to gain an insight to the suffering others went through. If you are travelling to Mt Kinabalu, please make the detour and visit

This post-colonial park dedicated for all British and Australian armies who died during WW2 in Malaya. Well preserved park with beautiful flowers. Entrance fees is RM2 for local. Worth a visit while you are in Kundasang
