Canons du Ouen Toro, Noumea

4.3
#11 of 33 in Outdoors in Noumea
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.

Where to stay in Noumea

There are few budget options in Nouméa, but a good selection of mid-range hotels. Most are concentrated in Anse Vata, at the southernmost tip of the peninsula, where you'll find palm-fringed beaches and plentiful bars, restaurants, and nightclubs. For something a little more central, consider one of the comfortable hotels around Place Des Cocotiers. The picturesque square is close to the marinas and cathedral, and makes a great base from which to explore the city.
