Waterfall New Caledonia Kaori River Source2
New Caledonia

This waterfall is right at the source of the Riviere des Kaoris, about an hour's walk along the trail that originates at the Baie du Carenage. The first 35 minutes of the way is an old mining road that runs along the river - then there is an obscure turn and the trail becomes overgrown and difficult to follow.

The nice thing about wandering around in the bush in New Caledonia is that there are no snakes, ticks or leeches and the only thing you need to be careful of is not slipping and scratches from the sometimes sharp vegetation.

And yes, that's Frederique and I being careful about not slipping.

To find out more about the Baie du Carinage and it's treks see the Cruising 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.
