Escape – Cocos (Keeling) Islands
7 night packages from AUD$2405 per person
Discover the pristine turquoise waters surrounding the Cocos (Keeling) Islands. With spectacular corals and beautiful marine life, dive, snorkel, catch a ferry or motorised canoe, walk or swim your way between each isolated island. Soak up the sun on Direction island, or relax on the endless coconut-lined, soft, sandy white beaches or take an underwater scooter tour. Cocos – do as much or as little as you like – this is your time!
Cocos (Keeling) Islands offer much in the way of water-based activities. With their stunning lagoon, surrounded by a horseshoe shaped ring of islands, a ferry trip will get you from West Island to Direction Island twice a week, Home Island daily, except Sundays, and an adventure on a motorised canoe will allow you to island-hop amongst the small islands in the Southern part of the lagoon. Home Island offers a unique insight into Cocos Malay living and culture, through the museum or a wander around the grounds of Oceania House, the old Clunies-Ross mansion.
Cocos (Keeling) Islands offers a slow-paced holiday, with places to explore which you will likely have completely to yourself, or mix with the locals to experience life in one of the remotest atolls in Australia.
Our Recommendation: Pre-book the canoe tour as part of your package (included). This tour is subject to tides, so best to lock this in and then plan the rest of your itinerary around it. Add a turtle tour!
