Here's one getaway that will convince you to return.
The Melanesian Arts Festival in Noumea is 12-24 September 2010. Artists and performers from Fiji, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, Vanuatu and around New Caledonia will be flocking to Noumea from for the two-week festival.
This would be a good time to get introduced to New Caledonia and enjoy a few nights in Noumea for the free festival events and two nights at a rainforest retreat before or after the spectacular closing ceremony at Tjibaou Culutral Centre.
The DealsFestival Short Break and Festival Week Escape packages have been priced with special emphasis on activities of interest to lesbian and gay travelers clincluding local parties at the community supportive clubs and cafes.
