I could say try getting on a boat from Indonesia but that wouldn't be very politically correct, so I won't...

You will have to fly to Australia and catch a flight from Perth or fly to Malaysia and catch a flight from KL.

first, get to perth then christmas island.via virgin australia.

altho apparently there are accommodation issues there due to the australian gov increasing their presence. there is an illegal immigrant detention centre on the island the number of 'arrivals' has been increasing lately.

same accommo problems with neighboring cocos-keeling too.

apparently there is a flight from kuala lumpur, malaysia too but am not aware of the deets.
