Rainforest Discovery Centre

The Rainforest Discovery Centre (RDC) is the gateway getting to know the uniqueness and importance of Borneo’s rainforests.

Situated 23 KM from Sandakan town and not too far from the Sepilok Rehabilitation Centre (SOURC), the RDC’s main highlights are its exhibition halls, the Plant Discovery Garden, the Kapili-Sepilok Forest Reserve, environmental education programmes and a small lake for boat rides.

The RDC also gives visitors a chance to get intimate with nature through its Nature Experience programme which includes a guided walk to the Plant Discovery Garden, Rainforest Walk and indoor / outdoor activities.

Birdwatchers will be fascinated by this place as it has one of the rarest birds in Sabah, The Borneon Bristlehead and another 250 species of other birds like the Hornbills, Broadbills, Pittas and Kingfishers. As of 2009, RDC has also become the official venue for the annual Borneo Bird Festival which attracts the participation of birding enthusiasts from all over the world.
