Living in Christmas Island
Christmas Island is an Australian territory, located 960 miles north-west of Australia in the Indian Ocean, near the south coast of Java in Indonesia. It is a very small island, with an area of just 52 square miles, and its population reflects this; there were 1,843 inhabitants according to the 2016 Census. The capital of the island is called Flying Fish Cove, which is also the main settlement. Much of the remaining area of the island is relatively untouched by humans; 63% of the Island is included in the Christmas Island National Park. The lack of human intervention in the environment is a primary reason for the National Park status, with the island having a large variety of unique species of both plants and wildlife and thus being of significant scientific interest. Despite the small population, a range of languages are spoken on the island, including English, Malay and Chinese. The predominant religions practiced are Islam and Buddhism. Economically, the closure of phosphate mines in 1987 meant that Christmas Island has no real export or industry. But the Island is known for its culture, shaped mainly by the various religions that co-exist harmoniously and are the basis of a range of festivals and celebrations. Tourism is relatively small-scale, but these festivals are a pull for many, as are the fishing opportunities in the region, and the unique environmental features.
