Sandakan Memorial Park


The interpretive pavilion will be closed to the public while it is being upgraded, expected to be completed by August 2024. The park and the memorial obelisk, will still be open and accessible to visitors. We apologise for any inconvenience.

The Sandakan Memorial Park is adjacent to the site of the original Sandakan prisoner of war (POW) camp.

For the visitor, the story of Sandakan is revealed at several memorial and interpretive stations around the park. This booklet has been designed to allow visitors to explore the park at their own pace. It contains information about the Sandakan POW camp, war relics used by the prisoners and important points of interest that convey the experiences of Sandakan POWs. Numbered posts on the ground correspond to the numbered information in this booklet.
