Designed to inspire and help Australians plan their first overseas trip, once International restrictions are lifted, the Caledonian Dream series follows on from a successful season 1, released in 2018.
“We’ve all been stuck at home lately, but this doesn’t mean our wanderlust has dimmed. This series is an invitation to forget about COVID-19 for a moment and catch the travel bug again ! We hope Australian travellers keep us high on their holiday list and we will be ready to welcome them when the time is right!” says Julie Laronde, New Caledonia Tourism’s GM.

Quote from Dylan: “New Caledonia was one of the most beautiful countries that I have ever been to. I loved exploring the picturesque beaches during the day and setting in for a nice drop of wine and an incredible feed at night. I was very surprised at how close it is to Australia and that I had never really heard much about it. I highly recommend visiting New Caledonia and I look forward to flying back there as soon as possible.”
* All episodes were filmed in 2020, prior to New Caledonia’s borders closure.
New Caledonia, who had previously succeeded in stopping community transmission of COVID-19 thanks to its effective border management (including compulsory quarantine in selected hotels on arrival) has faced its first cases on its territory. The rapid decision to enter strict lockdown has been a success as the virus has now been contained. This decision demonstrates that safety is top priority for New Caledonia. Combined with an effective vaccination roll-out (7% of the New Caledonia population has already been vaccinated) and strong health protocols, travellers can be assured that New Caledonia will be a safe destination to enjoy on their next visit!
