Kundasang War Memorial and Gardens
Kundasang War Memorial was one of the first memorials to commemorate the brave Australian and British Prisoners of War who died in Sandakan and during the infamous death marches to Ranau during World War II. The memorial also remembers the many local people who risked their lives to help the Prisoners of War. There were no English survivors, only six Australians survived in the tragedy. The Memorial is made up of four gardens representing the different nationalities - the Australian Garden, the English Garden, the Borneo Garden and the Contemplation Garden and Pool. The beautiful gardens are a reminder for those who sacrificed their lives for the freedom of others. The beautiful gardens are open to all visitors and are a stone’s throw away from the Kundasang Town.
