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

Most of where you walk on this island is in the national park, and in general it is looked after however I see signs of that dropping off with the board walk to Dolly Beach needing repair before someone hurts themselves. Many of the beaches...More

I was at Christmas Island in July 2016. I enjoyed Margaret Knoll and Territory Day Park the best. The walk to Hugh's Dale Waterfall is interesting - especially if you haven't got a 4WD to get there with. The walk back up the hill fairly...More

The Christmas Island National Park offers fantastic views and plenty of information about the natural environment. So much wildlife including birds and crabs that are found nowhere else in the world.

Went for a drive around the island while here on work. Take your time to avoid the crabs on the road. Red and Robber crabs. Head to the Blow holes and South point some old Chinese temples and a view out to sea.

This unique crab-dominated rainforest is really something different and marvellous to visit. Our favourite spots were the Dales where we saw so many different types of crabs that we lost count and the Blowholes which reverberate with thunder as they go off. The national park...More

63% of Christmas island is covered as natural park. If you're a nature lover, you will love the forest trail and rocky path drives. Do watch out for our red crabs buddies crossing the road when you're driving.

It’s best to hire a 4WD on Christmas Island as some of the tracks are 4WD only e.g. to get to Dolly Beach otherwise you have to walk down the long track. If you’re thinking of taking a 4WD off track, then there’s nowhere to... More
