    I advise you not to stop at the forest park. There are much better to do in Noumea. If you want to see animals in tiny cages, this place is for you. Personally I am not a fan.

    If like me you like to discover an island endemic species, this is the place that you should not miss in Noumea. The Park is perfectly maintained and filled many botanical specimens including, there is even a playground for children. The animals pens are sometimes a bit close unfortunately but we can see that they are well cared for. The price is surprisingly low which is significant because life is expensive in Caledonia

    We had a little trouble finding the Park which is on a hill. On the other hand it is great. The visit is done alone with a map which we don't have. The children served us as guide all along. The species presented are fabulous. It takes half a day to visit it in hurry. To know that there are times to feed some birds and it goes rather in the afternoon! Really feel free to go with family but provide picnic despite the presence of a snack at the entrance.

  • It was my 3rd time in noumea, but my first time here. This was easily my favorite place in Noumea.
  • This is an absolutely beautiful park, botanical garden and zoo. It's hard to spot some of the local birds in the wild; so this is a way to see them. It was especially thrilling to see the cagou. There are also some animals and a reptile house. It's a bit hilly, but if you don't want to walk you can rent a segway. In all, a must-do, especially for bird lovers and children.
  • Bit hard to get to, no bus direct on weekdays, have to walk up a hill. but worth the time to walk around see the animals. Bring food , drink and sun protection. Steep hills so good set of shoes as well.
  • C super la ba
  • Nice place for a family outing with children from 2 to 10 years 😎

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.
