Christmas Island National Park

A rugged hike to a lookout with clifftop views and plenty of opportunities for seabird spotting.

This is a short, steep and somewhat difficult walk, and you will definitely work up a sweat!

Starting from the carpark off Quarry Road, follow the track past an old Chinese cemetery to a cliff above the golf course.

When you reach the lookout, stop and catch your breath as the north-east coast stretches out in front of you and red-footed boobies, frigatebirds, and golden bosuns glide overhead.
