We were there on the weekend. We had been to the market and went to the Place because there was Cultural event taking place. There was music and dance by different ethnic groups. We had lunch there and it was very pleasant.

This is a park near the downtown of Noumea which is walking distance from the ferry station or ship terminal downtown. A great place to stroll with friends or just chill on a park bench under a tree.

An interesting spot to sit and watch people go by. Best part is the free wifi that you can access, provided by the city council!

This is the central square of the city. There is a visitor information centre if you want to pick up maps or brochures. It's nice for a little walk, but not a must-see. It was being renovated when I was there. Apparently it will have...More

We had low expectations after reading other reviews, but wanted to walk around between our excursion and re boarding our cruise so we walked here and around town. The square is big, and has lots of nice palm trees and a fountain, but it looked...More

This area was on the tour brochure as recommended for sitting quietly in the shade, watching the local colour. All that was locally colourful was the graffiti.
