History and Culture

Christmas Island has a fascinating history and culture which has formed a unique community, architecture and landscape.  

You are encouraged to try authentic local experiences through food, celebrations and joining in with community regular and special occasions.  A monthly ‘What’s On’ provides the latest information to help you plan your visit.

Take the time to explore the built landscapes and discover temples, historic buildings, old cemeteries and ruins.  For a glimpse of the past visit the Exhibition at Tai Jin House, the former District Officer’s Residence and the Chinese Museum on Gaze Rd. Ask at the Visitor Centre for opening times.
