Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is the place to stop as they know everything about the island and can help with almost all your inquiries. Centrally located and open most days, but closed Sunday. Worth dropping in for information.

Ladies were very helpful with all our requests. Maps came in very handy, Bought T Shirts.
Would be a bit careful with brochures, we found a few were out of date and created some issues as there aren't a lot of food options on the island so we relied on Opening Days & Times which weren't always correct.
The Blowholes was amazing, best we have ever seen and the Boardwalk was great. Recommend a visit to the Bird Rescue Sanctuary & The Pink House.
Bush walking, Cliff Climbing to West White Beach & Robber Crabs were highlights.

This should be your first stop on your visit to Christmas Island. The staff, big shout out to Wendy and Cheryl, were absolutely fantastic. Their welcome was so warm and friendly and there’s nothing they don’t know about the Island and how to get the most out of your trip.
The visitor centre has a great selection of gifts and clothing plus all the guides and maps you may need. It also has one of the best views over the Island.
A wonderful experience and the best place to find out all about the delights of the Island.

From our first interaction with the ladies in the Centre to the last we were treated as if we were old friends. Having arrived without any luggae thanks to Virgin Australia they heldped us find what we needed for our 3 day wait for our bags. They have in depth knowledge of the Island and lots of ideasof where to eat and what you can do. Make this your first port of call. Thanks to Chezzie (great coffe maker!) and Wendy in particular for making our stay stress free. They have a good range of clothing and other gifts so support them.

It was an absolute pleasure to assist the both of you whilst you were here. Having luggage not arrive would upset anyone, so it was our pleasure to help you forget about it quickly, get some clothes on your back and focus on the fun you should be having. We all know that most people need a good coffee to start the day and then some advice on how to spend your days to make the most out of your visit. I'm glad we succeeded with this, If I remember correctly you were also heading to Ningaloo? Please drop me an email and tell me how the rest of your trip went on the Western Side of Oz. We would love to hear about your adventures Until we see you again, Happy Travels and keep creating great memories!! Regards Chezzie Christmas Island Visitors Centre

My family and I came completely clueless to Christmas Island, a short visit later, a chat with the absoloutely lovely staff at the visitor center, we were full of new ideas. They made sure to answer all of our questions and divulged their favourite local spots.
