Christmas Island, WA

Although it is closer to Indonesia’s main island of Java, Christmas Island is in fact an external territory of Australia. This tropical island is located 2,300 kilometres northwest of Perth.

Christmas Island is a nature lover’s delight with about 60 per cent of the island being national park. The warm tropical waters are home to hundreds of species of fish and the land supports over 200 plant species, numerous species of birds and many different types of crabs.

Spectacular scenery abounds with pristine ocean, sheer coastal cliffs, beautiful sandy bays, coral reefs, and tropical rainforest.

Hotel and lodge style accommodation is available on the island. Flights are available to Christmas Island from Perth and from Jakarta.
