New Caledonia, your tropical neighbour waiting to be explored

New Caledonia is one of the closest Paci­fic neighbours to Australia and yet many Aussies still don’t know much about this island destination right next door.

For instance, did you know that New Caledonia offers a fascinating combination of sophisticated French style and cuisine together with the friendly, laid back Paci­fic island culture?

Or that the island is blessed with stunning natural wonders, including a UNESCO site and the largest lagoon in the world?

And did you know you can actually spend a few days with a local family, practicing your French and experiencing what life is really like as a New Caledonian?

Not exactly what you expect of a tropical island, but that’s what makes it so different. So take the time to get to know your neighbour. 

Flying direct from Australia with Aircalin you can be in New Caledonia in just two hours from Brisbane, less than three hours from Sydney and under four hours from Melbourne; the short flying times make this Paci­fic island the perfect getaway close to home.
