A natural wonder

Located just an hour-and-a-half away from Cocos, it’s a quick trip to visit an island with wildlife events described by David Attenborough as some of his most memorable.

Like Cocos, Christmas Island offers a nature immersion that’s off the beaten path. Experience undeveloped, breathtaking wilderness with almost two thirds of the island national park, as well as a fusion of Malay, Singaporean, Australian and Chinese culture.

Come for some of Australia’s best diving, snorkeling, hiking, fishing, and birdwatching, stay for the secluded beaches, friendly locals and wildlife.

Explore Christmas Island.

It is rare, in this day and age, to come upon a place so delightful in both looks and temperament that, on the very first sighting, one’s jaw does genuinely drop.

If going with the flow is how you roll, you will love the Cocos Keeling Islands. They have a small – very small – country town vibe. Your activities revolve around the exquisite lagoon whether they be snorkelling, diving, fishing, parasailing, or just relaxing under a coconut palm reading a book while inhaling the frangipani infused air

Scuba diving at Cocos Keeling islands is nothing short of spectacular. Fabulous visibility, pristine coral reefs, abundant marine life and all the trappings of a tropical paradise without the flashy resorts. Yes, it is isolated and it takes some effort to get there, but this is more than offset by the quality of the diving, the friendly locals and the very laid back and relaxing ambience of the entire place. It is quirky, fun and a great place for a holiday. We will return and soon

Don’t miss this place. My wife and I recently spent a fantastic week on Cocos Keeling Islands. We took the opportunity to take the twice weekly ferry service from West Island to Direction Island... we loved it so much we came back for a second time.

Home Island is definitely quieter than West Island with religion a big part of daily life but the locals were so friendly and welcoming. It was so nice to be able to swim straight off the shore in amazing turquoise water while we cooked BBQs at sunset. Highly recommended!
