Hi Christine, I haven't had a baby in Noumea, but a few friends have.

Hi Julie, Welcome to Noumea! I'm Australian and have 3 kids (5.5 years, 3.5 years and 1.5 years). The playgroup still occurs on Wednesday when there is no rain :) It starts around 4pm usually. Feel free to PM me and I can give you my number. I don't get there very often but I know the families who do and can include you on the mailing list if you send me your email address :) Cheers, Gemma

This blog is about my family's life in Noumea, New Caledonia. Before we moved to Noumea I found very little information in English about life in Noumea, so I am doing my best to help fill the void. We moved to Noumea with a baby, a toddler and a preschooler, only Mr Husband spoke French. The transition has been tough but we love life in the Pacific! Drop by and say hello :)
