      What to do

      New Caledonia Mar 15, 2014 at 11:18 PM

      I'm going on a cruise to some islands in New Caledonia in April. Just wondering what is fun and good to do with an 8 year old while on shore. I know there are shore tours organised by the cruise, but most of them are for older than 10yo and quite expensive. Any thoughts and suggestions please?

    • Are there fishing charters in Lifou???

      Lifou Nov 25, 2013 at 7:02 PM

      There are 5 of us travelling to Lifou for the first time and we would like to go fishing. Does anyone know of any fishing charters or locals that take people out fishing for the day or half a day? We will not have any fishing equipment with us. we would like to go reef fishing more than big game fishing/deep sea fishing. Would love some help. Even if you know the e-mail address for the tourism information centre there as the one I have does not seem to work.
      Thank you

      Hi we will arrive from Australia tomorrow
      wondered if there is a shuttle bus company anyone can recommend?
      I have heard the busses are difficult to take is this so?
      I also heard there was a bus from the airport we could take?

      Should we just book with a private company? the cost I found online was approx 70 dollars for two of us one way?

      Look forward to your feed back and any info on things to do and see while there!!!

      New Years Eve in Noumea

      New Caledonia Sep 24, 2012 at 12:11 AM

      Looking for advice on where to go to dinner in Noumea on NYE? We love people watching and atmosphere, so the livelier the better. If there are fireworks, then perhaps somewhere with a vantage point? Doesn't really matter about cost. We are staying at Le Surf, so I guess somewhere nearer to there would be best. Thanks!

    • Mount Panier climbing difficulty and guides

      New Caledonia Jul 12, 2012 at 10:02 PM

      We are going to New Caledonia in September and are very keen to climb Mount Panier.
      However, we have been informed by the Hienghéne Tourist Office via email that we cannot climb it during September as there are no guides then. The confusing thing is various references on the web do not say you need to have a guide just that you need to have a permit from the Hienghéne Tourist Office.

      Does anyone know what the situation is? And if there is a way to contact a company that has guides?

      Also, one of our group has a bad back and we have found references to the climb being difficult. However, we can't find any clear explanation about the level of difficult, walking times and whether it requires scrambling or it is just steep. Can someone please help us! Thank you!

    • New Caledonia in April 2012

      New Caledonia Jan 22, 2012 at 4:33 PM


      I'm going to New Caledonia for 10 days in April 2012 (from the 1st to the 10th). I have to pass an exam on the 7th in Noumea but I'm planning to rent a car and have a good look around during my free time.

      Since it's not very funny to travel alone, I'm looking for a "travelling companion". Is anybody interested?

      Also a practical question: is it possible to rent some camping gears on the Island for 1 or 2 nights?

      10-14 days in New Caledonia

      New Caledonia Jan 22, 2011 at 7:25 AM

      My husband and I are thinking about going to New Caledonia for 10-14 days in July / August 2011 to celebrate our anniversary. Any suggestions for an itinerary?

      Our total budget is approx AUD7,000 ... incl flights from Adelaide ($1,800 return for both of us).

      I would like at least 2 nights in a 5 star place ... but the rest is flexible. Rob's top priority is to see Isle of Pines. My top priorities is to see 'palm trees' on a beautiful beach and to go to the BEST snorkelling spots in NC. Do most places in NC offer scooter hire?

      Thanks in advance for any advice ... :)
