A dignified expanse of lawn with row upon row of headstones dedicated to the nearly 4000 Commonwealth servicemen, mostly Australian and British, who lost their lives in Borneo during WWII. The cemetery is near the golf course, about 2km east of town. A Peace Park on the west side of the island at Layang Layangan commemorates the place of Japanese surrender and has a Japanese war memorial.
