JW FLORA & FAUNA RUN 2008

Christmas Island, Australia
October 3 - 6, 2008

This is an Exclusive package tour brought to you by runner to runners! A holiday with a difference incorporating a half marathon with lots of fun awaiting you on the island.

Christmas Island is a dot in the Indian Ocean, an Australian Territory and its closest neighbor is Java which is 360km away. CI is the summit of a submarine rising steeply to a central plateau dominated by stands of rainforest. This plateau reaches heights of up to 361 metres and consists mainly of limestones and layers of volcanic rock. The Island is surrounded by a narrow encircling coral reef. There is virtually no coastal shelf and sea plummets to a depth of about 500 metres within 200 metres of a shore.


The famous Red Crab

If you are a nature lover, Christmas Island is for you! 63% of it is national park containing species of flora found no where else in the world. Probably the most noticeable local is the Red Crab with over 100 million of these vivid red creatures living on the forest floor.

Come October, the people of Christmas Island will celebrate their 50th Territory Anniversary. Join the locals in the celebration. Be amazed by the friendliness of the islanders with very diverse cultures and religions.
