About

Indian Ocean Fest

You’re invited to take a deeper dive into island adventure this June 21 – 28 on Christmas Island.

Be one of only 30 people to experience the first Indian Ocean Fest, Australia’s most remote island festival for adventure-loving oceanophiles. The inaugural festival will focus on the importance of marine parks and the pending proclamation of Christmas Island Marine Park, one of the most fascinating and unique ecosystems on earth.

The seven-day fest will offer you the chance to truly immerse yourself in nature – from jaw-dropping vistas, to deserted white sandy beaches, fresh-water streams, and waterfalls you can take a shower under. You’ll get up and close to diverse and prolific wildlife, from soaring seabirds and nesting bundles of feathery cuteness to majestic whale sharks and manta rays silently gliding by, along with friendly dolphins, giant green turtles and an incredible range of tropical fish delivering a kaleidoscope of colour. The carefully curated program blends  adventure-based experiences, think snorkelling, wilderness and coastal walks, diving, foraging, and one-of-a-kind culinary experiences paying homage to local cultural diversity and Asian heritage. Because we love and respect the ocean, it will also showcase some of the latest innovations in eco-friendly practices, marine science and ocean conservation designed to inspire and provide practical solutions of how you too can help protect the world’s oceans. Of course, there’ll be time to relax and take in the serenity and get to know the locals and their unique island life.

The full seven-day program of inspiration, entertainment and adventure with film, art, music, food, talks, treks, trails, and hands-on workshops will be delivered by an expert and experienced team of licenced local tourism providers and mainland adventurers, explorers, scientists, chefs, media, photographers and conservationists.
