There is no were else in the world like Christmas and Cocos Island. Christmas Island is one of the truly amazing places on the planet. with the most unique migration of any species. I am talking about the Red Crab migration. Each year millions of crabs migrate from the surrounding forest down to the beaches for that one perfect night to drop their eggs into the ocean. I cant describe how phenomenal this event is. Not to mention the amazing creatures in the water that also come for this event, whale sharks and manta rays feed on the larvae. it is such a Picturesque place topped by viewing this rare event. I was in crab paradise. I spent most of my time in Christmas Island but also managed to get across to Cocos which is equally beautiful but by contrast very different. I haven’t quite finished with these 2 Australian territories just yet, look forward to getting back there again in the near future.
