Spotted by Captain William Keeling in 1609, Cocos Islands, along with Christmas Island make up part of the Australian Indian Ocean Territories. There are 27 islands within the Cocos group with Pulu Keeling about 24 km further north. Set amongst fantastic outer reef, and beautiful white sandy beaches, it is a great place to visit and relax.

Pulu Keeling is different to the coconut plantations of the Cocos Islands, as it is uninhabited by humans, instead being home to flocks of seabirds, living in the Pulu Keeling National Park. Birdlife include Bobbies, Frigate Birds, Rails and Terns.

The region is also very popular with divers, offering a unique marine experience. Also seen in the region are the Common Dolphin (Delphinus delphis), the Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops truncatus), Manta Rays, Sharks, as well as a single dugong.

Location: 2, 300 km north west of Perth.
Access: National Jet, Ph: 13 1313 from WA and Christmas Island.
