There’s never been a better time for families to visit New Caledonia. The country’s international airline, Aircalin, is offering return airfares from Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne to Noumea for kids under 12 at just $199 (including taxes) with the purchase of every adult ticket, which is only $579 return.

Less than three hours’ flight from Sydney, kids and parents alike will love the family-friendly experiences on offer in New Caledonia, such as riding electronic scooters along the beautiful Promenade Pierre-Vernier, kayaking in a drowned forest at the Blue River Park, snorkeling in the crystal clear waters of Green Island or biking the trails of national reserve Deva Domain. Being a territory of France, it’s also a unique way for the whole family to experience a taste of French life combined with the local Kanak culture through visits to the Tjibaou Cultural Centre or the Port Moselle Markets in Noumea to see local producers selling their wares.

In addition to this offer from Aircalin, there are a range of family-friendly deals available on the ground, such as:
