Atkinson Clock Tower

Atkinson Clock Tower at Kota Kinabalu Sabah

One of the most enduring landmarks in Kota Kinabalu, it stands prominently on a bluff along Signal Hill Road adjacent to the old Police Station.

Built in 1903, this all-wood, no-nails structure was built in memory of Francis George Atkinson - the popular first District Officer of Jesselton during the

British North Borneo Chartered Company Administration, who had succumbed to a tropical disease at the young age of 28.
This Clock Tower has the distinction of being the oldest standing structure in the whole of Sabah that survived the destruction of Jesselton town during World War II. Till today, it still serves to keep the city's time.

The Atkinson Clock Tower is managed by the Sabah Museum under its Antiquity and History section.

Getting There
You can stroll there or take any taxi. From the bottom of Signal Hill Road (Jalan Bukit Bendera) at Padang Merdeka, turn left to get to the clock site. Or view it from the city.

Dendrobium datinconnieae - New Species Orchid found in Mount Kinabalu

Dendrobium datinconnieae - New Species Orchid found in Mount Kinabalu
Kota Kinabalu: A new species of orchid was discovered recently on Mount Kinabalu and the Crocker Range.

This species, Dendrobium datinconnieae, has been named in honour of Datin Connie Wong Mui Yun, a Director of Kota Kinabalu-based Natural History Publications, which has been responsible for many authoritative books on the biodiversity of Sabah and the Malesian region.

It also publishes the bi-annual Malesian Orchid Journal.

This unusually outstanding species of Dendrobium was also described in the most recent issue of Malesian Orchid Journal by botanist Jeffrey Wood, Curator of the Orchid Herbarium at the world-renowned Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in London.

The stems of this beautiful epiphytic species attain 35cm in length, the short inflorescences bearing three to five large yellow flowers usually borne on the older, pendulous leafless growths. A much rarer, orange-flowered form is only found in the Sayap area of Kinabalu Park.

Nearly 1,000 species of native orchid have been recorded in Sabah - which is about two-thirds of the entire orchid flora of Borneo. More than 800 species are found on Mount Kinabalu alone, 90 of which are endemic to the mountain.

The richness of Sabah's orchid flora is reflected in the continual emergence of new species, and taxonomists in renowned botanical institutions in Europe have been systematically describing them over the past two decades.

The announcement of this new species is particularly timely as the much anticipated Borneo Orchid Show, jointly organised by the Borneo Orchid Society Sabah, Ministry of Tourism Malaysia, Sabah Tourism Board and City Hall will be held from Oct. 1 to 5 at the Suria Sabah, Sabah Tourism Board Chairman cum Borneo Orchid Society President, Tengku Dato' Seri Zainal Adlin.

The show is also of particular significance as it is organised during the World Tourism Conference when several hundreds of key tourism players from all over the world would be here.

A one-day seminar is also being organised on the orchids of Borneo and the Malesian region which will place strong emphasis on their conservation in South East Asia.

Seven experts in various disciplines from Denmark, the Netherlands, Singapore, Hong Kong, as well as the capital, have been invited to speak on their specialist subjects.
