"Colonization Monument" Balade Things to Do Tip by hunwagner

Balade Things to Do: 4 reviews and 7 photos


In 1913, the French have built this small monument to commemorate their occupation of New Caledonia 60 years earlier, when a flag-raising ceremony was held nearby.
It stands on a small hill on the eastern side of the main road and is pretty easy to miss.
