The animals here are mainly birds with some monkeys and lizards on display. But the park is in a very pleasant setting, up a mountain with beautiful views and plenty of opportunity for the kids to run. The cafe is good too with a wide selection of lunch options and tasty food. The entrance is not obvious if you are... More

Interesting to see some of the wildlife of New Caledonia, especially the cagou. There are also enclosures of various animals from other parts of the world. Very friendly welcome at the entrance.

We spent about 3 hours here. The main attraction is a multitude of birds from New Caledonia and other parts of the world. There are also a few monkeys. The burger I had at the cafe was one of the nicest I have ever tasted. Get there via the Noumea Explorer. It's also part of the "Pass" which gives entry... More

We took the hop on, hop off bus to Parc Forestiere and Tjibaou centre in one day. Unfortunately this meant we had a short visit to Parc Forestiere so only saw the native forest area. This was an attractive park with nice paths through the bush. We saw several juvenile cagous, which have a nice spacious enclosure as well as... More

This is a very peaceful place to spend a couple of hours walking around, viewing wildlife, especially the unique New Caledonian "Cagou" or flightless bird. Lots of birdlife, especially peacocks, plus a few monkeys as well. The only down side is getting there as the only access is by car or taxi (no public transport options)

Had the fortune of having this park opened just for our group on a day when they are usually closed. It was a nice afternoon stroll. It was not crowded. The park seems very large and I don't think it would really ever seem crowded. The foliage was very nice and the local birds were interesting. All of the narratives... More

this is well worth a visit, make sure you get a cultural pass when you are here to give you access to other attractions

Take your walking shoes because there is a lot of walking! There are nice lookouts around the park and a nice little cafe at the entrance. The park is mostly birds, some of the enclosures were very small :-( but we did see many Cagous and enjoyed our day.

We bought a one day "Noumea Explorer" pass (or similar name). These buses are easily recognizable and go round and round all day around the main tourist attractions and are a 'get on, get off' bus. We started and finished the day at the bus stop out the front of Casa del Sole at Baie des Citrons. I think it... More

You will need a car, transfer or good walk (about 45 minutes mainly uphill) to reach this small zoo and botanical gardens but well worth the effort. There are a number of lookouts with spectacular views in several directions before you really explore the exhibits. The majority of the park is devoted to indigenous flora and fauna and has excellent... More
