This is more of a Bird Park than a Zoo in the traditional sense, and being set on slopes will involve a bit of (gentle) gradient walking (down first then up to leave) though all the main paths are paved. There is a great variety of birds (mostly) and they are generally well displayed and housed. Lots of good photo opportunities. It was an overcast day with some rain when we made our visit but it was well worth it.
One can make the visit as part of tours booked from the ship, but we just did it ourselves. We took a local taxi from downtown at a very reasonable price, but remember to have local currency, especially to guarantee a return trip. We had one taxi refuse our return trip because we had insufficient Pacific Francs and they would not take $AU. That could be very worrying if time was tight returning to a cruise ship!!

We visited the zoological park during the week and apart from a school visit we were pretty much on our own. Lots of bird life and a really nice walk around the mini lake where you’ll find lots of peacocks including white ones. We enjoyed the stroll (suggest choosing the left hand circuit around the lake as the best for shorter time period as the whole park is about three hours walking). Great spot for a picnic and some nice play areas for kids. Its best to bring your own food including water bottles as not much open or available at the park. The buses only run on the weekends so we asked the ticket office to book us a taxi back to town afterwards. Overall a really nice peaceful day out.

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.

A must see for anyone looking for a day out and a walk then this parc is your answer

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 one of the few places to go in Noumea that doesn't cost a fortune but if you are prone to insect bites then use some bug repellent if you're in the area where the cagou birds are. We got flea type bites on our legs whilst in the cagou area. There's also a playground and a small animal farm for children.
