A great place to view the city of Noumea, can see right down to the ship where it's docked. A short 15 to 20 mins walk through town, stop at the park in the middle of town.

We had a day stop here on our cruise and took the choo choo train around the city and to the look outs, a good facility. This was a very good view point of the city and bays and I think it is worth it.

Walking paths criss-cross the hill, or there's the road up. Busses don't down go up here but will drop you at thebottom if you prefer bus/walk to an organised tour. Great 360 degree views from the top.
