Indulge in #French luxury in the Pacific |

Despite being one of our closest neighbours, New Caledonia is relatively off the radar for Australasian travellers.

Surprisingly, friends and family think the French-speaking archipelago is somewhere near Tahiti in French Polynesia, not a mere 2½-hour flight from Sydney, or leisurely two-day cruise with Carnival Spirit, which is how I arrived on a sunny winter’s morning to the Melanesian islands laden with calorie-rich pastries, French wine and cheese.
