Miri's very first oil well, affectionately known as the 'Grand Old Lady' is a historic monument and a place of interest on top of Canada Hill. This is the original structure with some modifications, not a replica.
The story begins with a Mr. C.C. (Claude Champion) de Crespigny, then the Resident of Baram, who was the first to record the presence of oil in Sarawak. The entry in his diary, dated 31st July 1882, refers to oil discovered in some 18 wells dug by hand by the local inhabitants.
A National Park with incredible diversity as over 1,100 tree species are dwelling within a 50 hectare plot. Many plants and insects are yet to be discovered and identified. Alluring waterfalls and bathing pools are the main attraction that are characteristic of Sarawakian Borneo jungle experiences.
