Christmas Island, an Australian territory, is a small island in the Indian Ocean. Once a year, red crabs — native to the island — begin making their way from the forest to the ocean for mating season.
How to get there
There are direct flights to Christmas Island departing from Perth, Australia. A flight to Perth can easily be booked from many other major cities in Australia or South East Asia.
Once on Christmas Island, the red crab migration takes place all over. Several roads often need to be closed down. The island has even constructed several bridges and tunnels for them to safely make their way to the ocean. You won’t miss seeing them.
