The zoo is very spacious. There are many animal exhibits to look at and it takes a while to walk around. It's well worth a look.

This is a great park. Plenty of animals, native and introduced and all well cared for by countless staff. The terrain is hilly so I am glad we booked the Segway tour as we saw the lot effortlessly and enjoyably.

Lovely setting with great outlook over the city from the top of the hill. Take a picnic lunch and have a relaxing leisurely day strolling through the park. The peacocks were lovely to see wandering about freely. Good if you're into viewing lots of caged birds.

We used the 'Noumea Explorer' bus, and found that we had to spend 4 hours at the Parc. Not so bad, except that the cafe was closed all day. Lots of beautiful birds, and overstocked with peacocks. Not so much a zoo as a park with bird cages. Reasonably priced, but take a picnic!

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
