Also flamingoes,lots of birds,some monkeys and overall a cooler, pleasant place to spend a few hours on a hot day as it is on a hill above the main city of Noumea. Dont take the ships' tour because at the pier, $24 AUD will get you entry and a return car ride ,but I didnt do that. I got the... More

This is a lovely parc just outside the city that displays the remarkable native New Caledonian flora and fauna very nicely in a lovely setting. It allows you to stroll for hours through different examples of bird life and native flora. It is well laid out, inexpensive, and an easy stroll of people of all ages. It is on the... More

The zoo and botanics themselves are pretty light on animals and plants. There's a few native animals (mostly birds), and some plants. Entry is cheap, but it's on the side of a hill, so walking would be tiresome. We did the Segway 2-hour guided tour. Plenty of time to see everything, and much more fun on the Segway and with...

The Parc Segway tour was part of our onshore excursion from a cruise. The group was small and intimate (4). My partner was quite nervous about the Segway itself but with the excellent instruction and practice given by the guide, we were all off to a fun and informative exploration of the park. Our guide gave lots of information and... More

We really enjoyed a stroll here - wear walking shoes - even on a hot afternoon the paths were shaded by trees. Great place to picnic and wander amongst the peacocks. Some animals/birds were in cages too small but otherwise it's well managed and interesting.

We spent a few hours walking around the park enjoying the surroundings. It's very cheap to enter the park - I think about NZ4 per person. It was nice just wondering around.

It's overpriced and not worth it, spend the time walking and getting into the nature, it's a bit hilly but worth the walk. Not sure how well the captive animals are cared did, some look a little undernourished.

The zoo itself is about average - though we saw a snake swallowing a lizard whole (and alive) which for New Zealanders was really exciting. The best part for us was doing it on a Segway. The best way to go!

When we were at the Parc we saw local plants and animals not easily seen in the wild before we went to the wild places.
