This is a peaceful and beautifully kept WWII memorial (graveyard) administered by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, located about a 5-10 min drive from the main Labuan Town. There are a significant number of graves of British, Australian and Indian soldiers who were killed whilst attempting to defend Labuan Island from the Japanese, or who died in POW camps. The fact that so many of the graves belong to "unknown soldiers" and the young age of those who were identified and who died so far from home is incredibly saddening.

The cemetery is immaculately kept by the Commenwealth War Graves Commission and thus respecting those who paid the ultimate price defending freedom from tyrrany.

Labuan has an amazing amount of WWII history, and like all the WWII locations on the island entrance to the memorial was free.

I last visited the World War II Memorial in Labuan ages ago. Recently during our one night stay in Labuan, a friend brought us there. It's so beautiful, very well kept and peaceful. If you happen to be in Labuan, do visit this war Memorial, which is only a few minutes drive from the town.

Located in the middle of nowhere and about 8 minutes drive from the city centre. You can get Grab to and from the park to the city. Free entry to the park. There are some small local cafes at the entrance of the park.

We stand eternally in debt to the brave few who made us what we are. Homage to the Glorious Dead
Manicured lawns with neat gravestones and the name of the brave along with there young ages inscribed on metal plates....a wonderful site to show our respect. Take a little bit of our previous being for this piece of history in Labuan

This memorial was very much worth a visit. The graves are tremendously well kept and its sobering and sad to see so many unknown graves, and graves of men under 25. There is a memorial for Indian soldiers and a small pavilion with information about the war. Its a peaceful place to be laid to rest and feels a world away from Labuan proper.

We have mixed feelings visiting this WWII Memorial. First, we felt sorry for the departed; second, a sense of pride for their selfless sacrifices; then, a sense of serenity & calmness knowing that they are finally laid to rest peacefully in this beautiful memorial park. It was said that the bodies of the personnels were all shipped in from Sabah, some with the military tags hanging around the necks. Of 3,908 of them, 2,156 were unidentified. My grandfather was a Chinese leader held captive and was killed by the Japanese soldiers during WWII, therefore I always make it a priority to visit WWII memorials to remember and honor my grandfather and the war heroes. Labuan WWII Memorial is Malaysia’s largest war cemetery, it is well taken care of and you can see many beautiful flowers planted next to the white headstones. We took time to read the loving messages from the family members engraved on the grave metal plates. There were two gravestones with the photos of the deceased placed next to them by the recent visits of their family members. There is no entrance fee and the memorial is open to public everyday.
