About Christmas Island

Christmas Island is a territory of Australia located in the Indian Ocean. The majority of the island has been designated a national park and, as such, much of the land has been preserved and protected. It's a truly stunning destination that is best known for its beautiful rainforest and waterfalls as well as some amazing dive sites within the Java Trench.

Christmas Island is also famous for its annual red crab migration and tremendous array of rare native birds, making it a big draw for nature-loving travelers. For those who want to know more about the people and industry that shaped Christmas Island, there are also several sights dedicated to the island's history and culture, including the Gun Emplacement and Ma Chor Nui Nui Temple.
