Darrell, it is in the Palm Valley. From the visitor centre follow the trail towards the left. There are signs posted along the way. The palms are physically next to the heritage Tembusu tree.
and yes, the palm will actually die. a number of palms do that. The palm that gives us the sago flour, Metroxylon sagu is an example. btw the sagu that we eat is actually not a seed or anything like that, but manufactured from the starch extracted from the sago palm's trunk after it is felled.
