It was nice to walk around with the free roaming birds but the cages for some of the birds, monkeys and small island for lemurs was sad to see.

The zoo is at the top of a hill overlooking most of Noumea. Mostly birds, but a few other interesting things, especially the reptiles. A good way to spend a few hours wandering around. Plenty of picnic facilities.

A must visit when in NC, with indigenous birds, and other species of flora and fauna. Great for kids too. 2-3 hours enough to look around and quite a lot of walking involved. You go through a walk-through cage with Cagou birds in it. And...More

This is more of a sanctuary than a conventional and mostly a bird sanctuary. Do not expect Elephants and Tigers! The highlight is the Cagou bird enclosure. These are flight-less and very interesting birds native to New Caledonia. Be sure to get there at feeding...More

The name says it all - this is a forest park with some animals, not a standard zoo with cage after cage of exhibits. Set among acres of native forest, the exhibits aren't numerous and do consist mostly of birds - unsurprising as New Caledonia...More

The park is hard to get to during the week. The local bus only runs on weekends. We took a taxi, and arranged with the driver for another taxi to collect us at an agreed time. Taxis only take cash, not cards, and it helps...More

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.

Hi there. We organized it through our cruise (royal Caribbean) in all it was $120aud each, but well worth it :-)
