A good hour walk up and down. Definitely the highlight is the 2pm feeding of the Kagu. What a fascinating bird and well done to all those involved in protecting and repopulating this national symbol.

The park was a nice surprise with a variety of birds, reptiles and monkeys. Really well maintained and easy to get around. Went during a week day so had to walk from the closest bus stop. The weekend bus takes you alot closer though.

This is a very good bird park with some small animals but it covers a big area on a steep hill so do the SEGWAY tour it is worth it. Really needs some walk through cages.

The main attraction of this park has to be the Cagous! They are a near-flightless bird, native to New Caledonia. Photos really don't do them justice; much cuter in real life, especially during a feeding session at the park. They are on the endangered list,...More

the zoological park is a great place to visit with the kids. We had a picnic in the shade of a tree and saw many birds including the famous kagou. A nice to do with the kids. Next time, we might take a guide.
