Noumea ©
Capital of New Caledonia, Nouméa sits on a large peninsula of attractive, snaking bays.
Step out of Noumea with an excursion to Blue River Provincial Park in Yate--about 1h 20 min away. And it doesn't end there: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Aquarium des Lagons Nouvelle Caledonie, kick back and relax at Plage de la Baie des Citrons, examine the collection at Musee de Nouvelle Caledonie, and step off the mainland to explore Ilot Maitre.

To find more things to do, reviews, photos, and tourist information, go to the Noumea holiday maker.

Brisbane, Australia to Noumea is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Brisbane to Noumea. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) 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.
