This is more of a sanctuary than a conventional and mostly a bird sanctuary. Do not expect Elephants and Tigers! The highlight is the Cagou bird enclosure. These are flight-less and very interesting birds native to New Caledonia. Be sure to get there at feeding...More

The name says it all - this is a forest park with some animals, not a standard zoo with cage after cage of exhibits. Set among acres of native forest, the exhibits aren't numerous and do consist mostly of birds - unsurprising as New Caledonia...More

The park is hard to get to during the week. The local bus only runs on weekends. We took a taxi, and arranged with the driver for another taxi to collect us at an agreed time. Taxis only take cash, not cards, and it helps...More

A good hour walk up and down. Definitely the highlight is the 2pm feeding of the Kagu. What a fascinating bird and well done to all those involved in protecting and repopulating this national symbol.

The park was a nice surprise with a variety of birds, reptiles and monkeys. Really well maintained and easy to get around. Went during a week day so had to walk from the closest bus stop. The weekend bus takes you alot closer though.

This is a very good bird park with some small animals but it covers a big area on a steep hill so do the SEGWAY tour it is worth it. Really needs some walk through cages.

Travelled with our young family and extended family. Was a great trip despite not many animals. No normal zoo animals such as elephants, lions, zebras or such. Mainly all birds, ostriches, lorrikeets, monkeys and lots of spiders in huge webs! Overall we had a great...More

The main attraction of this park has to be the Cagous! They are a near-flightless bird, native to New Caledonia. Photos really don't do them justice; much cuter in real life, especially during a feeding session at the park. They are on the endangered list,...More

Hi there. We organized it through our cruise (royal Caribbean) in all it was $120aud each, but well worth it :-)
