We ended up with a spare day in town and thought we would take our daughter here. Its really just a few parrots (and some sad looking monkeys) in cages. The petting zoo was just 2 goats and a couple of deer in a bare dirt enclosure that was closed for some reason? There was also minimal english signage about... More

Avairy maybe. zoo no. A monkey, donkey and kangaroo. Lots of peacocks. Even the gardens aren't much. The Cafe wasn't open so may wandered around for an hour. Could do better

We visited this park as part of a cruise ship excursion, so we benefited from having a guide with us who walked us through the park. However, overall, the park was a beautiful place to visit, and it was well maintained. All of the exhibits are sign posted and it was relatively easy to spot the different birds in nearly... More

Drive up interesting. A small zoo, but we did not cover it all a our 4 year old had enough on a very warm day. Wear comfy shoes. Many animals in small cages. Many animals also found in Australia.

A lovely place to relax amongst the vegetation but very few animals. Only saw a couple of monkeys, an assortment of birds and plenty of peacocks. Couldn't really recommend it's worth a visit.

Can heartily recommend the Segway tour of the Zoo & Botanical Gardens in Noumea. My wife & I are both over 60 & had never been on a Segway before. The staff are very safe and make sure you are completely competent before you head off. In fact they are very easy to use and really quite fun. Definitely worth... More

The zoo is spread over quite a large area and is mainly birds with a couple of monkeys. You do get to see the national bird of new Caledonia, the Kagu, which is why we went. Lots of peacocks roaming around the zoo and lots of different paths to take. The snack and coffee shop at the front was well... More

At about AUD$5 this attraction was fair value for money, with a dozen or more bird aviaries and a handful of cages for monkeys and so forth. We'd have done the Segway tour but, like so much else in NC, it had to be booked in advance. Some pleasant walking but not inspirational.

I found this zoo to be quite boring only because I have been to much larger more animal friendly zoos. I would still recommend you go as it only takes 1.5 hours to see everything and is very cheap (400 CFP). It is located at the top of the hill overlooking the port so the view is very nice.
