The entrance to the Territory Park is right next to the HQ of the CI National Park. This is the best lookout in the Island. The Panorama view of Flying Fish Cove is so picturesque that no tourists or visitors to the Island should miss!

Much of Christmas Island is considered the National Park, mainly the whole island except for parts of the east side. There’s a lot to see in the National Park, including beaches, the Dales, the Blowholes, the old railway at South Point and many birds and...More

Crabs are everywhere and will be easy to spot in the park. There are a few wooden boardwalks but some are broken and they do not connect. Also have a few stairs to beach areas and camping facilities. The main attraction are the crabs which...More

Christmas Island and the National Park are awesome for all photographers and tourists who like to get off the beaten track, and don't mind a few (well heaps of...) crabs and birds, oh and lots of mosquitos in the rain forest. Well worth getting into...More
