The Kuching Wetlands National Park (KWNP; Malay: Taman Negara Tanah Lembap Kuching) is a national park in Sarawak, Malaysia. It is the remains of the former Sarawak Mangrove Forest Reserve which covered 170 km2.

Located 30 km from Kuching, the Wetlands National Park was gazetted in 1992 and covers an area of 66.1 km2 on the estuarine reaches of the Sibu Laut and Salak rivers. The park is composed of coastal, marine and freshwater ecosystems. The predominantly saline and deltaic mangrove system includes an extensive network of marine waterways and tidal creeks, formed by the interconnecting rivers of Sungei Sibu-Laut, Batang Salak and Sungei Santubong that form the boundary of the park. Some small patches of heath forest are found within the park.

  • We did a tour of Kuching Wetlands and saw crocodiles, proboscis monkeys, mudskippers, eagles, fiddler crabs and fireflies. There are also some good views of the surrounding mountains and fishing villages. Well worth a visit if you are staying in Kuching.
