About this book

Sandakan Rainforest Park (SRFP) is located about 9 km away from the centre of the coastal town of Sandakan in Sabah, Malaysia. Historically and scientifically, the Park is known as Kebun Cina (Chinese Farm or Orchard) Forest, which previously covered a much larger area (up to Mlile 1½, North Road) than the present area of 148.6 hectares. Some of the earliest botanical explorations in Borneo were carried out here. The Park is the locality of about 110 type specimens; as such, it is a very important site for research on plant diversity in Borneo. The core area of this park is still in a pristine condition. Many lowland species of flora and fauna of Borneo are found in this forest.

In January 2007, the Kebun Cina Forest was gazetted as an Amenity Forest Reserve by the Sabah State Government. Currently, Sandakan Rainforest Park / Kebun Cina Forest Reserve is jointly managed by the Sabah Forestry Department and Sandakan Municipal Council.

At present, among the attractive features of this park are: carnivorous pitcher plants, living topotypes of about 110 plant species, its early history related to the early botanical explorations and the early suburban settlement known as Kebun Cina, an  exhibition building (Kebun Cina Gallery), jogging track, nature trail and a children's playground.

This guide book provides information on the following at the Sandakan Rainforest Park:
- History of ”Kebun Cina" and early botanical explorations
- Some of the interesting flora, fauna and other aspects of nature of this park
- Facilities for outdoor recreation and nature education
