Walks to Inspire
All across Christmas Island, especially in the national park, you'll find scenic drives plus maintained and marked walking trails and boardwalks. They are designed to suit all levels of fitness and activity, and offer enjoyable ways to get up close to nature.
Enjoy a meander along shorter, well-developed trails through forests and coastal areas. Or if you’re fitter, take on longer and more rugged tracks that offer challenging climbs and may take you to remote beaches. Tracks are marked with international standard reflective directional arrows. Explore the terrain along the way and follow trails to excellent lookouts for birds. Wander through tranquil rainforests that include cultural and historic sites, like temples hidden in the jungle. The key is to make sure you plan your walks in advance and you’re well prepared for the experience. And keep your camera handy at all times.
Note: Personal Locator Beacons (PLBs) are now available for hire from the Christmas Island Visitor Centre. PLBs are designed to be carried by bushwalkers or solo adventurers and are actviated in the event of an emergency when immediate search and rescue assistance is required. It is recommended that any person exploring Christmas Island in the National Park, or in areas where there is no mobile phone reception, that a PLB is carried to alert authorities in the event of a serious emergency.
