- New Caledonia
- Sample the spectacular flora and fascinating culture of New Caledonia. Although 1000 km off the Queensland coast New Caledonia has been isolated from all other landmasses for at least 45 million years . This isolation has forged the evolution of unique and highly diverse flora. The combination of Kanak and colonial French cultures makes New Caledonia a highly desirable destination.
