Noumea Forest Park & Bird Sanctuary (Parc Zoologique et Forestier) Excursion Reviews

Right in the middle of the city of Noumea is the Forest Park & Bird Sanctuary (Parc Zoologique et Forestier), where cruisers can go to stroll lush botanical gardens and peruse more than 700 animals including the rare cagou bird.

Wonderful walk thru a nature park with lots of interesting birds plus some bats and other wildlife. Since it was Sunday December 1, there was a Christmas market in the park with vendors selling wares they made themselves going on which we enjoyed. In addition, I took the Maritime Museum tour that morning and we then rode the bus to a beach where the local folk were enjoying the first day of summer (Dec 1) on a Sunday. Great to see such happy people enjoying life here. It is a happy, cosmopolitan city. Read Less

Loved the tour of the bird sanctuary and nature park. Got to see a number of species unique to New Caledonia. Also, there happened to be a Christmas market going on by local artisans. We were able to purchase very good items direct from the crafters. Used Australian dollars and Central Pacific Francs. In addition, in the morning, I took the Maritime Museum tour which was quite interesting. Our bus also visited a beach full of folks enjoying a summer Sunday (Dec 1) picnicking and enjoying the beach and the calm water. Very happy people! Read Less
