Christmas Island is a dot in the Indian Ocean, located 2600km north west of Perth, Western Australia. Even though it is an Australian Territory, its closest neighbour is Java, 360km away.

A visit to Christmas Island is a diverse cultural experience with numerous temples, festivals and a variety of cuisines. The island's population is a blend of Chinese, Malay & Caucasian from the Australian mainland.

Exploring the waters surrounding the island is an experience not to be missed. Myriads of tropical fish swim by in only metres of water, while a short distance away, divers can cruise the drop-off which plunges dramatically into the abyss.

If you love nature, you will love Christmas Island - 63% of the island is classed as national park! The most noticeable local is the Red Crab with over 100 million of these vivid red creatures living on the forest floor. Depending on the time of year, you may even come across a majestic whale shark.

There is a range of accommodation to suit your budget and each offers a personalised service that only comes with smaller operations, ensuring that your stay here will be an enjoyable and memorable experience.

You can fly to Christmas Island from either Perth, Singapore or Cocos Island.
