High quality, unique, reasonably priced
Jun 2021 • Couples
What a stunning store, especially for such a remote location. Would not be out of place in a row of boutiques in Melbourne or Sydney.
Supports local artists and industries, gorgeous photography and tasteful gifts and souvenirs.
If you want cheap Bali style nick naks, maybe wait until you can go back to Bali. The prices are comparable to the mainland- Glasshouse candles and ethically made leather goods are not found cheap anywhere.

Lovely shop but very, very expensive
Feb 2021
We loved the shop which has many beautiful items for sale and is well laid out. The lady running the store was lovely, but whilst we are aware of the expense of getting things to the island, we thought that the prices were too high for us

Extremely expensive

Wild Papaya is nice for a browse and is also air conditioned so it’s an enjoyable way to spend 30 minutes. The prices are eye watering even by Island standards. There is a fantastic range of photographs and prints. And I’m sure everyone can find something to buy :)

Wild Papaya is a lovely little shop in the Settlement, behind the newsagency / pharmacy.

They’ve got homewares, a bit of giftware, and lots of pictures for sale. Wonderful and friendly staff.

Very Interesting Shop

Loved this little shop, crammed full of goodies to take home from Christmas Island. Sorry I didn't have enough time in the shop, to fully check everything out. Highly recommend this shop, as you are guaranteed to find a gift for everyone you need to buy for!

Beautiful gift shop
Apr 2017 • Family
This shop is full of beautiful things. Prices are high but nearly everything must be brought in and attracts freight costs. There is a fantastic picture/ photo gallery within the shop highlighting local scenery, flora and fauna.
