Went to try the Segway - the park, views and animals were a real bonus

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... read more

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

We booked the Segway tour of the Parc Forestier as a shore excursion from the Carnival Legend and while it was one of the more expensive options it was the best tour we did. The "zoo" was an interesting place to visit, more birds than animals (loved seeing the native bird- the cagou ) but located in a nice forest... More

Pretty much like any zoo. Unfortunately we found that the larger birds seemed to have the smallest cages - which we found sad. Lovely setting and well maintained. Be warned that if you take the bus - it is a long walk up a steep road. (Remembering that is is well above 30 degrees Celsius). We were very fortunate that... More

There was an introductory pavilion which showed the various effects of man on the environment of New Caledonia. There were many peacocks wandering around. We were happy to see the famous cagou, native to New Caledonia. I also liked seeing the large red flying foxes. There were iguanas and many colourful parrots and other species native to tropical regions. The... More

It has mainly birds although not a big variety. It is a nice place to go for a picnic as it has plenty of tables and chairs to sit down relax and enjoy the quite nature. Not worth the trip if short in time.

Based on others reviews we hired segways at Le Village complex near the city centre and had a great time at the Parc zoologiqueet forestier. The Parc is nice and quiet on weekdays but reported to be busy with lots of locals on weekends so go when it is quiet. It is on a steep hill so getting around would... More

We did a segway tour of the park, and I can't recommend it enough. Great array of birds and other smalll animals on display. Close to the city.

Taking a segway tour will allow you to breeze through the park, nice on a hot day, and you will be able to see the entire park quicker than if you walk thru it. Also, there were no signs in English that tell you what you're looking at, so all you would think is, "Oh a bird" without knowing the... More
