Australian Offshore Islands & Territories

Travel overseas without needing a passport

About Destination

Australia has more than 8,200 islands but there are about ten of these that are big-enough or remote-enough to be considered 'overseas'. Most have unique, endemic wildlife and culture. Tasmania is the largest by far, followed by Kangaroo Island. There are the remote colonies of Norfolk Island and Lord Howe Island in the Pacific, The Cocos Keeling Islands and Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean and a smattering of other islands that require flights from the Tiwi's off Darwin to the islands of the Great Barrier Reef.
