Located 2600km off the coast of Western Australia, Christmas Island is a dog-shaped speck in the middle of the Indian Ocean. A sea cliff dominates the 80km coastline, only broken up by small sand and coral beaches with shallow bays. A narrow coral reef rings the island, with a steep drop-off 200m from the shore.
Christmas Island is the epitome of ‘where the forest meets the sea’. The northern tip of the island is the only inhabited area, and Flying Fish Cove is the main settlement. The rest of the island is the Christmas Island National Park – a rich, lush swathe of rainforest sweeping down towards the sea. Living in this rainforest is an array of endemic species including the Christmas Island Flying Fox, Christmas Frigatebird, the critically endangered Blue Tailed Skink, and the renowned Christmas Island Red Crab.
The Red Crab Migration is a phenomenal annual event that sees millions of red crabs leave their forest homes with the first rains of the wet season and make their way with gusto towards the ocean to mate and spawn.
Dive along pristine reefs supporting over 88 species of coral and 650 different kinds of fish life. From the smallest shrimp to the biggest fish in the ocean, Christmas Island has something special to offer all divers.
Located in the heart of the Settlement precinct, the VQ3 Lodge is surrounded by lush gardens. It is within walking distance to taverns, cafes, the supermarket, restaurants and Christmas Island’s main shopping area.
The boutique style hotel provides clean, comfortable and quiet accommodation, with a range of facilities to help make your stay enjoyable and hassle free.
