Surrender Point, Labuan Island

(45+ reviews on the web)
Monument Tourist Spot
Visit Surrender Point, an historical site commemorated with simple, small memorial. The place where Japanese forces officially surrendered to Australian Major General George Wootten on September 10, 1945, the memorial marks the location of international importance, while also commemorating the lives lost in the Pacific Theater. Simple information panels tell the story of World War II in the wider arena and detail the grimness and struggle of life on the island during the war. The memorial sits adjacent to the Peace Park, a shared venture between Malaysian and Japanese authorities that's designed to draw the two countries closer together in the modern era. Arrange your visit to Surrender Point and discover more family-friendly attractions in Labuan Island using our Labuan Island itinerary planner.

  • Historic places, but not well taken care off. The places can be better with better care.
  • A small enclave at one corner of Peace Park. Close to the sea. A small signboard is erected to signify its existence. It is shady and windy here.
  • A very nice place to get away from city. Yet so disappointed there are signs of vandalism
  • Historical place & park. suitable for family outing
  • Need more upgrade as war memorials
