The Brunei-Australia Memorial

The Brunei-Australia Memorial commemorates Australia’s cooperation with Brunei and the Bruneian people during World War II.

On 10 June 1945, troops from the Australian 9th Division and supporting forces, with the cooperation of the people of Brunei, landed on four beaches at both ends of Brunei Bay.  These landings were part of Operation OBOE 6, whereby Australian troops seized the island of Labuan and successfully led the Allied campaign in Brunei.

Dedication Ceremony

The Dedication Ceremony will take place at Pantai Muara.  On arrival, follow the main path approx. 200m north-east of the carpark.

Morning Tea

The Dedication Ceremony will be followed by a morning tea.
