Christmas Island

A walk around Christmas island is by far the best way to explore this extraordinary island and uncover its forests, wetlands and beaches. There are walking options for all interests and abilities - from relaxing rainforest boardwalks through to rugged hikes that reach secluded beaches - either way you'll capture spectacular views of the coastline and the Island's wildlife.

Enjoy being Robinson Crusoe as you make your way through lush rain forest through to palm-lined beaches where the only footprints will be your own.

Whether you're up for a meander along a boardwalk or more longer, rugged tracks with steep climbs - you'll be amazed with the tranquil forests and cultural and historic sites.
