Launceston, Australia to Lifou is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Launceston to Lifou due to the time zone difference. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Ile Des Pins.

Just a little way off the southern end of Grand Terre, Île des Pins (the Isle of Pines) gets its name from the tall columnar pines that stick out of the surrounding vegetation like bristles on a brush.
Ile Des Pins is known for beaches, nature, wildlife, and outdoors. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: kick back and relax at Piscine Naturelle, don't miss a visit to Upi Bay, head outdoors with Nokanhoui, and explore the fascinating underground world of Grotte de Hortense.

To find ratings, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read our Ile Des Pins trip planning site .

Getting from Lifou to Ile Des Pins by combination of taxi and flight takes about 3 hours. In January in Ile Des Pins, expect temperatures between 32°C during the day and 26°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Thu) so you can travel to Noumea.

Capital of New Caledonia, Nouméa sits on a large peninsula of attractive, snaking bays.
Venture out of the city with trips to Fort Teremba (in La Foa) and Parc Provincial de la Riviere Bleue (in Yate). There's still lots to do: observe the fascinating underwater world at Aquarium des Lagons Nouvelle Caledonie, head off the coast to Ile aux Canards island, tour in style with a train tour, and explore the landscape on two wheels at Promenade Pierre-Vernier.

For maps, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Noumea trip website .

Traveling by combination of taxi and flight from Ile Des Pins to Noumea takes an hour. On the 16th (Thu), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
