4.8
#5 of 6 in Museums in New Caledonia
Fort Teremba is a former fort and a prison located near Moindou in New Caledonia, which came to be set up to house prisoners and the supervisory staff. The prisoners were brought to build road network Canala-Bourail-Boulouparis. It overlooks Teremba Bay (Uarai Bay), opposite the mouth of the La Foa River, 124 kilometres north of Noumea.The fort was further strengthened following the revolt by Kanak people against the French Colonial rule, in 1878, when they had besieged the prison. The fort was closed in 1898.

    A remarkable restoration made in NC that explains the history of labour and the region of the Foa. A must-see!

    We started our 1st trip to NC by the Teremba Fort. This has allowed us to understand the history of the region. The visit is made following a route very well designed and very nice, first within the confines of the Fort (very well restored), then around. There are even more accessible summaries for children and a movie (on the ground floor of the central building) very well done. The landscape is beautiful. A without hesitation!

  • Museum with lots of old stuff from the Frenchmen. It was an old jail a few decades ago. A must-see!
  • A fort which housed the convicts in the 1800s. Not in use now.
  • I was there as part of a music festival. The framework and the fort were superb.
