Great Park, but see it on a Segway

We arrived just 17.04 h but even the closing of the park is 17.45 h ( last entrace is 45 min before closing) we were not allowed to enter. Quiet disappointed of such restriktion ** the lady would not risk any minute besides.....

What a beautiful place. We spent four hours wandering through the trees checking out the fauna (mostly birds). We managed to cover half of the parc, but were taking it really easy. The parc is set on a hill but all of the walkways are paved and easy to walk. Luckily there was plenty of shade and resting areas in... More

WE visited this park which has some very unique bird life and other interesting animal. The setting is lovely and well worth seeing. However it is quite hilly and a challenging walk in Tropical weather, so I would suggest that you take the Segway tour offered by Mobilboard

You'd think, wouldn't you, that a trip to this place in Noumea, New Caledonia, which [NC] in many ways is to trees as the Galapagos is to animals, would be a delight in store for any tree lover. Out of all 19 known species of araucaria trees (of which the monkey puzzle and Norfolk Island pine are part), 13 are... More

I was looking forward to the visit and seeing the Cagou. In fact, due to weather (a bit of wind and rain) the zoo was closed 30 minutes after we entered. Fortunately we had been able to see the Cagou cage (it was the first place we headed), and they did give us our money back, but I was disappointed.... More

Went here thinking it was a zoo, which had animals to see. Instead we saw a lot of birds in cages. It was a very large park with beautiful views across the town. It had one cage with monkeys, I felt a little sorry for them. They have Segway tours around the park, we didn't do that because it was... More

While not a great fan of zoos, this is interesting as it is a chance to see some of New Caledonias birdlife and plants in one place. Bus access is limited to weekends although there is a public bus about 10 minutes walk away. It is difficult to walk there from town as there are few footpaths. Anyway, be prepared... More

We were lucky to go on a Tuesday when they feed the national bird. Very interesting and photogenic. Lots of peacocks about and just lovely but slightly hilly walk around. You can get a sedway to ride around but we got there too late. Large cruise ship tours may be there at the same time but that was fine.

While zoos are not really my thing - spending time viewing the local bird life here is time very well spent! How can you not enjoy the Cagou...make sure you visit at feeding time each day and hear the talk and ask questions. You could spend expended periods of time here! It is set on a hill - so be...

This is a perfect day out for a family with little kids. There is a bit of walking involved therefore would recommend getting a pram or baby carrier. Lots of peacocks roaming around the place with very tropical plants and fruit on display. Mostly birds and some monkeys but no big cats or other African/Australian or other animals. Fresh air,...
