Farino is a commune in the South Province of New Caledonia, an overseas territory of France in the Pacific Ocean. Get out of town with these interesting Farino side-trips: Bourail (Musee de Bourail, La Distillerie de Nessadiou, &more). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Sentier de la petite cascade, see the interesting displays at Fort Teremba, ride a horse along Pocquereux Randonnees, and stroll around Parc des Grandes Fougeres.

To see where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Farino trip itinerary builder tool.

Sydney, Australia to Farino is an approximately 7.5-hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Sydney to Farino due to the time zone difference. While traveling from Sydney, expect a bit warmer days and about the same nights in Farino, ranging from highs of 36°C to lows of 25°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Thu) early enough to travel to Mare.
