Billed as “The French paradise on New Zealand’s doorstep” New Caledonia is less than three hours’ flight from Auckland. It’s a land where people and cultural influences blend together with a French flavour. And yes, they embrace horseracing. The locals are friendly and speak English too! Our itinerary is varied, with time to explore and lots of opportunities to create lasting memories. The focus will be on fun and friendship, with a highlight being an evening at Hippodrome Henri Milliard for their final Group 1 “Nocturne” race meeting of the year, taking place on Saturday 19th October.
We’ll be flying Air Calin and staying at the 4-star Hilton Nouméa La Promenade Residences in Anse Vata, which offers spacious, modern, fully-equipped apartment-style accommodation. Overlooking the lagoon, and within walking distance of numerous local attractions, it’s a superb location.

Accommodation options include 1-bed apartments (double or twin); 2-bed apartments (ideal for two couples sharing); and 3-bed apartments (perfect for three single travellers). A day trip to Amedee Island, with its Lighthouse, glass bottom boat and snorkelling, is included (with lunch/ wine), along with an excursion to the acclaimed Tjibaou Cultural Center.
There is also the option to visit the beautiful tropical Aquarium. All transfers (superior shuttles) are included. This is a bespoke escorted tour for 20 people, available on a first-come first-served basis, so get in quick! Join us on this fantastic trip that promises sunshine, sea, fun and horseracing – and great food! If you’re a single traveller, you won’t be alone, you’ll be amongst new friends – we can advise regarding accommodation options. 

An initial deposit of $250 will be required to secure your place on the trip. Full payment will be required in August.
