Highlights of my travels in New Caledonia with kids

With stunning islands to explore, friendly locals and a unique blend of French/Melanesian culture and food, New Caledonia turned out to be a fantastic place to have a relaxing holiday.  The best part….it’s only a short 2.5 hour flight from Brisbane!  

Spending a week in New Caledonia with my husband and young son, was a chance to relax before knuckling down and saving IVF money for a desperately wanted baby number 2.

My sole reason for choosing New Caledonia as the destination, was the short flight time from Brisbane.  As that I only had a week to spare I needed to minimise travelling times.

The food, culture and stunning islands were a real surprise and I can’t wait to come back here with more time up my sleeve for exploring.

Below are the highlights of my trip as told through photographs:

Jason’s face when he realised the food was French influenced and quite possibly might taste like the food we had experienced in French Polynesia
