New Caledonia Tourism has officially launched its Bastille Day 2019 festivities, hosting agents on Thursday night at its Kanak Beach Village pop up in Circular Quay, part of the wider Bastille Festival event.
Open to the public each day from 10am between 11 - 14 July, at the eastern end of Circular Quay, the New Caledonia Kanak Beach Village is a celebration of New Caledonia’s French heritage and unique Kanak culture.
Sydney-siders and visitors can dip their toes in sand (yes, there’s 28 tonnes of real sand!), try island-inspired cocktails, chow down on seafood BBQ or nibble on specially created desserts from KOI and Messina that feature the French, tropical flavours of the island.
This is alongside a giant treasure hunt competition from Aircalin and New Caledonia Tourism, which sees entrants follow a map and clues around Circular Quay, to unlock a treasure chest and go in the draw to win a trip to New Caledonia.
