The aquarium in Noumea is a must see if you have the time. Don't expect to see dolphins jumping in the air or clapping eals. You will discover a lot however, on the secons largest barrier reef in the world and the largest lagoon in the world. It is well known for its unique fluorecent coral display.

This is one of the nicer aquariums that I have been to. All the tanks have the fish listed at the side of the tank which makes identification easy. I saw fish I have never seen before in any aquarium. The nautilus shell is an outstanding display. Price for entry is reasonable. $10 per adult. Bus stops right nearby so... More

This attraction is exceptional. For the meager entry price you are taken on a journey through the undersea world of the largest tropical lagoon in the world. Not to be missed

Since the changes and renovations of 2013 this has become a must for any visitor to Noumea, catering for all ages the interactive activities help you to understand the diversity of the inhabitants of the lagoon and mangroves around New Caledonia.

At the end of Anse Vata beach. Worth a stroll for a visit. Displays are well organised and have both French and English captions. Closed Monday and XPF1,000 entry

Clean, well presented exhibits. Most even had english explanations, a rarity in french speaking countries. The facility is not large but it does have both fresh and salt water exhibits. Worth seeing

For a location like Noumea, this is a pretty nice aquarium. There is enough to see for it to be an interesting couple of hours.

We really enjoyed our time at the aquarium - the displays were excellent. Everything was lovely and clean and very well set out. Remember if you are a senior to show your card the discount is worth it.

The aquarium itself is DEFINATELY worth the visit, but make sure you do not have any other currency other than FRENCH FRANCS. Rather poor, I thought, for a tourist attraction. We were sent to a burger place and bought a coke to get change. Ask for a SENIORS DISCOUNT. This will get you 250FF off your entry.
