7 food experiences you have to try in New Caledonia

New Caledonia is one of our closest neighbours – it’s just three hours flight from the east coast. The Pacific Islands gem is not just beautiful to look at (hello, white sand beaches, warm turquoise waters, chilled-out turtles and palm trees), it’s also a culinary destination. Noumea and beyond offer up a cavalcade of local food experiences. Try Bougna, a local delicacy of chicken or lobster wrapped in banana leaves; get a taste of the French-influenced New Caledonian culinary scene; explore hip waterfront bars; or try a fun food festival (they even host their own Avocado Festival). Is your mouth watering yet? We thought so. Fortunately, New Caledonia are currently offering Time Out readers a chance to win a foodie vacation of their very own, including airfares, five nights accommodation, and an unforgettable meal. Enter here.

Rhys Nicholson

Rhys Nicholson

If the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Rhys Nicholson is snappy suits, candy-apple hair and square glasses, then you need to get to know him better. The Sydney-based comedian has cultivated a huge following with his super-intelligent and biting observational comedy and no-holds-barred reflections on his life – all of which he delivers at breakneck pace. Last year, Nicholson's show was nominated for the illustrious Barry Award at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival. To that, he says: "Why not come and watch me desperately try and back that up this year? C'mon. Why wouldn't you?"
