We decided to walk to the Zoo/botanical gardens one day from town. Would not recommend this, it's quite a hike and all up hill! There is a bus but I think it only runs on the weekend. The best way to get there is either by car or taxi or the bus 50 and get off nearby and walk up... More

We walked from Noumea central to the gardens - DON'T, if it's a hot day. The weather in August is sunny, bright and breezy and cool. It was all uphill and it went on and on for maybe 8km. We caught the bus back. Entry into the gardens was 1000 Francs (Aus$12.50) - not cheap, not expensive. Because we were... More

Need to take a taxi to here if you aren't driving yourself. Make sure you are clear about where you want to go as we were taken the the garden restaurant! Set on many acres we easily spent a few hours wandering around, looking at the birds and flora. You can have guided tours on a Segway. Loved seeing white... More

Recently did a P & O trip to New Caledonia. Absolutely loved the Segway tour of the park. The park itself is not exciting but on Segways it was great fun. My husband is 68 and I am 61. We found it easy to learn as the tuition was one on one. After 20 minutes we were off. Thoroughly recommend... More

We had used Segways before so were keen to try this excursion offered by our cruise ship, Carnival. We were taken from the ship in a mini bus, met by a lovely couple who gave the participants a lesson in how to use the Segway before having a great tour of the park. We had headsets so we could hear... More

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

We visited on a very warm day so appreciated the cool shade and plenty of seats to rest and enjoy the view. The birds were hiding from the sun a bit but we saw some. My criticism is that the map given at the entrance gate is totally inadequate.

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.
