KUNDASANG WAR MEMORIAL


Located on a hill immediately behind the vegetable wholesale stalls is the Kundasang War Memorial and Gardens.
Major G. S. Carter, D.S.O. (Toby Carter) a New Zealander employed with Shell Oil Co. (Borneo) initiated the building of the Memorial in 1962, together with the launching of Kinabalu Park; to commemorate the 2,428 Australian and British prisoners who died during World War II at the Sandakan POW camp, and the casualties of the three infamous forced death marches from Sandakan to Ranau. It also serves as a tribute to the many local people who risked their lives while aiding the prisoners of war. Only six Australians survived in this tragedy to tell their horror and there were no English survivors.

This place would probably take you 30 minutes to cover as they are surrounded with a few sections. There is a small fee at the entrance that is collected to maintain this historic site.
