A great way to discover the 2 or 4 legged inhabitants of the island. Great amenities. Animals are happy and well taken care of

We had a pleasant walk around the park, enjoying the birds and apes. Some of the enclosures feel a bit run down but still good for an hour or so.

We were glad we had a car to be able to visit as the park is out of the main city. The entry was cheap and the park was nice to walk around. It was nice to see native birds and animals. The park was well designed for families and people taking picnics. We were surprised with the size of... More

The easiest way and the most fun way to see the park is by a guided Segway tour .... We had a hoot weaving our way from display to display. Would be a bit of a gruelling walk / good work out (depending on your point of view) if you went under your own steam ... as it is quite... More

Because the soil is so nutrient deficient in New Caledonia, there isn't much to see in the way of flowers and the animals were in small cages and looked pretty bored. I felt sorry for the monkeys and birds.

Ok place to visit. Drove up here and walked around. Saw some birds, Although the "exhibitions" should have been updated. But for that price one cannot expect much more. Ok playgrounds for the children (4 and 5 years old).

My last visit to the Parc Forestier was many years ago. Since then the enclosures have been improved a lot - especially for the New Caledonian birds. I also enjoyed the walk through the dry forest seeing the kauri trees growing to a good size.

We spent a pleasant 3 hours here last Friday. The 35 hectare park is situated on top of a high hill about 4ks from the city centre. There are some great views (between the trees) from several points. Entrance fees are 400XPF for adults, 200XPD for seniors (over 60), students, handicapped and 12 - 17yr olds. Under 12s are free.... More

The areas are clearly defined at entrance. You go through gates and down, down and down as you see the various birds in the cages with both english and french language. Nice pond with ducks and good playground for children with good and well signed amenities/toilets. Plants very lush, green and varies. You need water, hat and there is seating... More

There were 6 in our group with 2 guides. Had some lessons first, fairly easy to learn and control and fun! I'd love one for use in our very steep garden. Hope I'm allowed to buy one in Australia for use at home.
