Australian Marine Parks

Australia’s Indian Ocean Territories are remote and unique. Together, the Christmas Island Marine Park and Cocos (Keeling) Islands Marine Park encompass more than 740,000 square kilometres of marine habitat, making them of international conservation significance.

The marine environment of these islands is also very important to local communities for a range of social, economic and cultural reasons.
