Located 900km West of Christmas Island, the Cocos Keeling Islands are the most Western part of Australia.The chain of 27 islands form around the ring of an extinct volcano and offer the quintessential tropical holiday destination with gorgeous white sandy beaches, most of which are uninhabited.

West Island is home to part of the local population including the airport, and will be your first stop. Most of the accommodation properties are located on West Island, including many of the tourist services and amenities.There are plenty of beaches and coastline to explore either on foot, bike, scooter or with a vehicle. Trannies beach for snorkelling, Pulu Mariah for a lagoon walk and the yacht club to view the colourful kite surfers in the season, all make great places to wile away your day.

Home Island, which is home to the Cocos Malay community and the seat of the Clunies-Ross dynasty, Oceania House, is regularly serviced with a ferry across the lagoon.
