Christmas Island: A Perfect Holiday Destination

Welcome to Christmas Island, the wildlife paradise right on mainland Australia’s doorstep that many have heard of yet few have visited.

Located just South of Indonesia, your Christmas Island holiday destination is just a short flight from Perth. With dense jungles, beautiful sandy beaches and crystalline blue waters, Christmas Island is a tropical paradise. The most famous of Christmas Island’s tourist attractions is the unique annual red crab migration which occurs every year between the months of October and January. Truly a sight to behold, millions of these crabs make their way from the depths of the jungle down to the ocean to spawn, creating a spectacle that is rightfully one of nature’s greatest events.

As well as the annual crab migration, there are plenty of opportunities to spot unique wildlife all year round. A haven for bird-watchers, Christmas Island has an abundance of lookouts perfect to spot frigatebirds, boobies and the golden bosun, amongst others.

Down in the crystal clear waters that offer comfortable year-round temperatures of 27⁰C, things get even more spectacular with brightly coloured fish darting amongst the pristine coral reefs. Snorkelling and scuba diving is breath-taking at any time of the year, and spinner dolphins and even whale sharks can be spotted between November and April.

Full of natural wonders, this remarkable island still feels like an undiscovered and unspoilt paradise. With glorious wildlife and a depth of culture and history to discover, Christmas Island is a place where unique travel experiences collide to create a trip you’ll never forget.
