Tai Jin House
Known locally as Buck House, Tai Jin House is set on a hill beyond Flying Fish Cove and can be seen from the sea on a clear day. The house is the original home of the British administrator of Christmas Island, and features sprawling gardens with views overlooking Flying Fish Cove as well as a permanent exhibition inside on the cultural heritage of the island. Just beyond the house, there’s a naval gun and fort which were installed in 1941 in order to defend Flying Fish Cove during World War II.
