Christmas Island Tourism Association

Christmas Island, a dot in the Indian Ocean, located 2600km north-west of Perth, Western Australia and 360km south of Java. If you love nature, you will love Christmas Island! 63% is National Park containing species of flora & fauna found nowhere else in the world! It is estimated over 80,000 seabirds nest here annually.

But probably the most noticeable local is the Red Crab with over 60 million of these vivid red creatures living on the forest floor.

Exploring the waters surrounding the island is also 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 and swim with the visiting whalesharks in the season.

Christmas Island Tourism Association markets this unique island destination, the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean, to the world.
