If you are walking along the riverside you will see this fountain. Try to catch it when it is working. I have never seen anything like this fountain.

Nice area to stop and sit in the shade of the flame trees , and watch the river boats , stainless steel hornbill sculptures are interesting modern art feature.

From what I observe, the fountain does not look inviting. Even looks ugly from one angle of view. Recently, the fountain is not functioning as there is no water spouting at all.

It is actually not a fountain, just a pound. It contains several structures like a bird, but I am not sure. The location is in front of the Brooke bistro.

Nice looking fountain but nothing really to write reviews about!! It is at the Kuching waterfront and it can't be missed, you will pass it.

This fountain is just beside James Brooke Bistro at the Kuching Waterfront. Modern fountain with great lighting at night.

The sculpture and fountain contain some nice metal work but work is needed to make it more impressive still.
