Australia's Christmas Island is home to hundreds of species of birds, native plants and wildlife, many of which are not found anywhere else in the world. In this version of the much-loved Christmas carol 'The Twelve Days of Christmas', we count down to Christmas and celebrate the unique birds that live on this wild and remote island.
From the bright-red plumage of the Frigatebird to the iridescent green of the Emerald Dove, these vibrant birds capture the essence of the festive season, making The Twelve Days of Christmas Island a uniquely Australian Christmas book to be cherished and read year after year.
