Across the waterfront from the Historic District is the State Astana of Sarawak. Built in 1870 by Charles Brooke, the White Raja, and colonial leader of Sarawak it has been used by the governor of Sarawak ever since. Unfortunately the Palace grounds are not open to the public.

Address: Waterfront Northside
