Blue River Provincial Park - New Caledonia

The Blue River Provincial Park was created in 1980 and covers a surface area of  9,045 hectares.
Lumber and mining operations at the turn of the century have left marks that are still visible.
Learn more about New Caledonian history in this unique natural environment, alternating between observing the scrub that has grown back in the mining zones and the rain forest.

Both of these environments are exceptional for the abundance and diversity of the flora, and there is an especially high rate of endemic plants.
Most of New Caledonia's birds are found in the Park, which contains the largest population of Cagous in New Caledonia thanks to the Southern Province's repopulation program. - in:
