Drive to the Kanak Cultural Center passing the beautiful bays of Nouméa en route—Lemon Bay, Anse Vata Beach and the Promenade Vernier. The Cultural Center, designed by Renzo Piano, is a harmonious alliance of traditional and modern indigenous New Caledonian (Kanak) architecture. The highlight of your outing is a 45-minute, very easy walk with your guide along the Kanak Pathway. With tales of Kanak myths and folklore, your guide will capture your imagination as you walk the shaded, flora-lined trail leading to the three imposing, faithfully reconstructed, traditional Melanesian huts from three different regions. Back within the main air-conditioned center, view the various exhibition huts housing precious ritual masks and costumes, totem poles and sculptures—all of exceptional standard.

We enjoyed this walk through the Kanak Cultural Center and Gardens. Our guide was very knowledgeable about Kanak culture and able to share this knowledge with us. The design of the center is beautiful and full of meaning to the Kanak people. The photos I took are among my most interesting from the trip. I gave the excursion 4 stars because it wasn't over-the-top great, but very good.
