Canons du Ouen Toro, Noumea
(4.3/5 based on 90+ reviews on the web)
Work up a sweat with a climb to the top of Canons du Ouen Toro, a tall mound overlooking a lagoon. Choose from several trails ascending the forested slopes, all of which lead to the summit and two Australian cannons left behind from World War II. Take a guide and learn about Australian troops stationed here to assist New Caledonia during the war. For the best views, visit at the end of the day, when you can catch the sunset.

  • The view on the Bay with Islands and Noumea is absolutely beautiful made covered or sunny weather, it is wonderful. The only downside is the markup of the pedestrian route... it is almost nonexistent, and the ride could not be carried out again... more information on the species would be from property

  • we took the Tchou Tchou Train to Ouen Toro and while the ride out of town was lovely, the pinnacle of the trip was the views from the Hill. 
  • Ouen Toro created provincial park in 1989, covers 50 hectares. The top of this corner of nature in the city amounts to 128 meters. He is wearing two large cannons installed by the Australian army in 1940. From here, we kiss an exceptional view of Nouméa and its region, the Bay, the islands of the lagoon, mountains in the distance. Preserved motor gear, it is a paradise for walkers and joggers who have the choice between several trails that crisscross the Park largely covered with rich dry forest of many endemic species. Paragliders have actually also their favorite place.
