Tip of Tanjong Kubong

✨ Tanjong Kubong Tunnel also known as Lubang Gantang or Terowong Tanjong Kubong, this is a vertical coal mine shaft reaching depths of up to 40 meters below the ground’s surface. It functions as a gateway for a network of coal mining tunnels located underground.

✨ British graveyard 5 tombstones dating back to 1866 believed to commemorate workers from the Labuan Eastern Archipelago Company

✨ Coal formations & sea cave

Along Labuan Chimney Walking Trail, we discovered coal formation and sea cave. The earliest coal mining centre in Southeast Asia in 1847. There is a shaft and a tunnel as evidence of mining activities. 

Tanjung Kubong area consists of three sedimentary facies: pebbly sandstone facies, sandstone-mudstone facies, and mudstone facies of the Belait Formation estimated to be 15 million years old.

Some geomorphological features of the coastline can be observed here such as beautiful beaches, several sea caves, and rocky cliffs.

Gedung Ubat or Ammunition Store is located near the tip of Tanjung Kubong

✨ Gedung Ubat

Gedung Ubat or Ammunition Store is located near the tip of Tanjung Kubong. The name of the structure comes from the words ‘gedung’, which means warehouse in Malay, and ‘ubat bedil’, which in local parlance means ‘bullets’ or ‘gunpowder’. 

It is the storage area for artillery and explosives used by the Japanese army during World War II. The structure is cylindrical in shape with a height of 3.5 meters. It has a cone-shaped roof and a doorway overlooking the sea.
