About the region

Australia’s Indian Ocean Territories (IOT) are comprised of Christmas Island (CI) and the Cocos (Keeling) Islands (CKI) and located 2,600 kilometres from Perth, Western Australia. Located closer to Asia than the Australian mainland and surrounded by the third-largest ocean in the world, this remarkable region is full of possibilities for world travellers and inspired investors, with extraordinary natural treasures to be found both above and below the water.
