Labuan Botanical Garden
Built in 1852, the Botanical Garden which was formerly the site of the Government House, locally known as “Bumbung 12”. The house was a long and low structure with an interesting roof design and it was completely destroyed during the War. Today only the water storage tank remains, along with a small grave of a much-loved foxhound named ‘Jim’. The park has two graveyards which are believed to be the oldest on the island with fascinating tales. The Botanical Garden is a beautiful recreational park with old trees and nice landscaping.
It was believed that Hugh Low, Colonial Secretary for many years and persistently passed over for governorship, did much of the early work on the Garden where many of the older trees were planted by him.
