Fodor's Review

A quaint, and rather cute, way to get around town is aboard the Petit Train, which travels along roads (rather than rail lines) to Noumea's main sights. The little train, painted red and purple, has been running since the late 1990s and runs throughout the day, traveling in a loop beginning at the Palm Beach shopping center (near Anse Vata Beach) and ending at the Zoological Gardens at Forestier, just a little north of the city center. It calls at the main beaches, the

Place de Cocotiers (Coconut Place) right in the heart of town, Ouen Toro (a hill with WWII cannons and great views over the lagoon), the Tjibaou Culture Centre, and the district of Fanbourg Blanchot, which is known for its colonial mansions. Purchase tickets from the driver or from Amac Tours at Palm Beach shopping center, also known as Galerie Palm Beach.
