Shopping on Christmas Island

A visit to Christmas Island is like taking a step into another world. There are no shopping malls and opening times are varied and short, allowing you to spend more time exploring this natural wonder.

There are a small variety of shops and galleries which offer an excellent range of t-shirts, beach and bespoke fashion, souvenirs, gifts, homeware, handcrafted jewellery, photography and art, snorkelling gear, fishing tackle, pharmaceuticals, groceries, and duty free items.
