New Caledonia weather overview

New Caledonia is a French administered territory in the Pacific Ocean that lies approximately midway between southern Queensland and Fiji. Lying in the path of the balmy south-easterly trade winds it has a sunny, temperate climate year-round. However, in the summer months (December to April), the sun can be obscured by heavy rain, as this is the peak wet season when cyclones are most likely to hit, bringing torrential downpours and, sometimes, flooding in their wake.

Temperatures and humidity are highest at this time but both are mitigated by sea breezes. The best time to visit is between June and September, when conditions are cooler.

What to pack for New Caledonia weather

Pack light clothing with warmer cover-ups for chilly evenings and sea breezes. Take rainwear if visiting between December and April.
