Cocos Islands

The Cocos (or Keeling) Islands is an Australian external territory in the Indian Ocean, comprising of twenty-seven coral islands, of which only two are inhabited by humans, located approximately midway between Australia and Sri Lanka. William Keeling first discovered the islands in 1609, but there was no settlement until the early nineteenth century. The British formally annexed the islands in 1857; they were transferred to Australia in 1955.
