No disappointments. It was a real adventure that provided plenty of photo opportunities to challenge the camera and photographer behind the lens. The birds are gorgeous and so colourful. They’ll leave you in awe. I wish we had a place to this extent at home....More

Not much of a zoo, mostly birds. Nice paths and picnic spots with tables some good views and shady spots. The families with small children seemed to enjoy it. Was thinking it was a botanical garden but not a lot named.

Pleasant place to walk around for a few hours to see indigenous birds, monkeys and bats with a lot of birds such as peacocks wandering around free. Monkeys in cages which were of a good size with plenty of activities for them. The zoo is...More

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

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

Hi, There is no restaurant or café here :( However there is a fuel station and dairy about 700 metres down the road. ( if you’re walking it is steep! ) if you have a car then that’s perfect
