Explore one of the only coconut plantation farms in Australia with our resident farmer Tony Lacy.
Designed for all ages, this behind-the-scenes experience begins with a relaxed tour through the coconut palm jungle, where you'll learn about the life of a coconut and about the fascinating history of copra production on Cocos Keeling Islands.
After collecting a few coconuts along the way, it's into air-conditioned farm production rooms to experience a hands-on demonstration of coconut production - from how to husk a coconut to producing sweet, fresh pressed coconut cream, coconut chips and delicious homemade coconut ice-cream.
This tour offers generous tastings along the way, and you'll also have the chance to explore the farm's wholesale shop filled with locally-made coconut products.
If you don't have a car on West Island, we're happy to offer a complimentary transfer service. Please meet at Salty's next to the Airport at 8.45am for pick up and we'll drop you back to settlement once the tour's complete.

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!
