Cocos from the Air
Had a fantastic day on these motor canoes. Clear waters and great for snorkelling
Near the runway as my Virgin Australia plane lands.
Delighted I visited here. Tourists are not encouraged here. Cocos Keeling is really used for strategic reasons by Australia due to its runway.
None of the facilities are timed to suit tourists. So only one restaurant open and one shop that was closed for two days.
The post office was only open for a few hours and lucky to be able to post mail. A long story for future .....

Virgin Australia flies 2/3 times per week from Perth to Christmas and Cocos (Keeling) Islands.

The GPO in Perth.
I was surprised and delighted to see this sign outside my hotel. When I was first here in 1990 , I recall a Irish sign outside my hotel when I got up for breakfast. I thought it was jet lag seeing this in Australia of all places. By pure chance I stayed at the same hotel this time.
