Nearby Accommodations

About 2 kilometers east of Labuan city center, lies the Labuan Botanical Gardens which was formerly the grounds of the Government House. It is locally known as “Bumbung 12”. Built in 1852, the house was a long and low structure with an interesting roof design. It was believed that Hugh Low, the Colonial Secretary for many years did much of the early work on the Garden. Many of the older trees were planted by him. The house was completely destroyed during the War. There are two graveyards that are believed to be the oldest on the island can be found within the Botanical Gardens. One of them which is very dense, has graves dating back to 1847. These graves were transferred from Ramsey Point along the beach, where repeating tides resulted in the erosion of old naval grave sites. One of the two graves relocated was that of Commander James A. Gordan of HMS Wolf, who presented himself at the handing over of Labuan to the British on December 24, 1846 and who assisted in the construction of the grounds. Nowadays, the Botanical Gardens is a recreational park with old trees and beautiful landscaping.
