GRNC1 trail Carenage Waterfall New Caledonia
New Caledonia

This is the Cascade du Carenage, about a 1hour 45 minute walk (7km) from the start of the GRNC-1 trail at Prony Village. There is a small signpost on the GR-1 marking the steep trail down to the waterfalls.

This is the perfect place for a swim although after heavy rains the waterflow can be pretty strong. Normally the water is crystal clear and chilly - a refreshing stop on the trail.

For details of the GR©NC-1 trail see the Rocket Guide to New Caledonia

More About New Caledonia

New Caledonia is the closest South Pacific Island to Australia and New Zealand. It is a French Territory and although the official language is French the culture is a blend of Melanesian, European, Polynesian, Vietnamese, Chinese, Indonesian, and more. There is one large mountainous island called Grande Terre and 6 smaller islands - the three Loyalty Islands, Belep and the Isle of Pines.The islands are remarkably unpopulated and there are vast areas of wilderness. There are hundreds of kilometers of walking treks, camp grounds, more than 42 parks and reserves, and crystal clear rivers with sparkling waterfalls. Almost one third of the population is located in the capital city of Noumea. Nickel mining is the primary industry and is the major contributor to the high standard of living in the country. Grande Terre is surrounded by the second largest barrier reef in the world and the protected lagoon created by this barrier reef is the largest in the world. Listed as a World Heritage Site in 2008, the lagoon is 24,000 square kilometers and supports a diverse and luxuriant fauna of fish and invertebrates.The vibrant, clear and rich colors are one of the first things that visitors notice when they arrive. Noumea has a complete range of hotels, resorts, restaurants, and activities to welcome visitors.
