From time to time, the Minister with responsibility for territories provides updates directly to the local communities of Christmas Island and the Cocos (Keeling) Islands. These messages are complemented by more operational Community Bulletins, issued by the department, or the Administrator of Christmas Island and the Cocos (Keeling) Islands. Community Bulletins contain information for residents and stakeholders about service changes, consultation opportunities, community events and new initiatives.
Bulletins from the current and previous year are available online. Earlier bulletins can be obtained by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or the Indian Ocean Territories Administration Offices based on Christmas Island and on West Island, Cocos (Keeling) Islands.
