Birdwatching & Fauna Tour in Christmas Island, Australia

This 7-Day Christmas Island Birding Tour is moderately paced and available on set departure. Join our team of dedicated researchers and natural history experts for a week-long immersion in the Island’s birds and wildlife with daily activities such as banding the goshawk, monitoring brown boobies, and spotting and identifying the island’s many species of crabs.

Explore the unique birdlife on Christmas Island!

The annual Christmas Island Bird & Nature Week offers bird lovers the opportunity to get up close and personal to nature and all has to offer. Experienced guides, working on research and specialising in birds, help bring guests and the unique fauna and flora of the Island closer together. Bird & Nature Week guests are also offered the option to extend their stay in Australia’s Indian Ocean islands and participate in the Cocos (Keeling) Island add-on, which is all-inclusive.

Christmas Island Birding Tour Highlights

  • Actively participate in citizen science working alongside scientists as they band birds including the Christmas Island goshawk, monitor brown boobies, and collect data – all in a safe, low-impact, and educational atmosphere. Capped numbers for the event keep the group manageable and the experience intimate for guests. Enjoy small group sizes to rotate through the different activities each day.
  • Expert guides to managing varying abilities throughout the program for safety and comfort. Plenty of opportunities for spotting and identifying the island’s many species of crabs.
  • Take part in nightly presentations offering comprehensive information about conservation projects on and off the island, and topics relevant to the program.

Please note: this set-departure tour is also available as a private or custom tour on request. Please submit an enquiry with your preferred dates and group size.
