Perth - Cocos Islands

Fri Mar 18, 2005 4:55 am

Just a quick one:

I want to go travelling to Cocos Islands (south of indonesia, nw of aus) out of Perth.

has anyone been there? is it difficult to get onto a flight there, or is preference given to residents? also, how has the events after the tsunami affected things? the cocos islands were right in the direct path.

I believe flights are operated by National Jet Systems on a Monday and a Thursday via Learmonth and Christmas Island, using Avro RJ70's.

The Islands website makes no mention of the Tsunami, check it out at

Hope this helps
