There are reports an asylum seeker boat has reached Christmas Island.
SBS are reporting that the boat made it near Flying Fish Cove before being intercepted by the Australian Navy.
Locals told SBS it is the first time a boat has been that close since January 2013.
It is believed the boat arrived within 200 metres of the cove in the early hours of Friday morning.
It is unclear if the boat was taken to the mainland or whether it would be towed back to its origin.
