My husband and I visited Noumea whilst on a cruise, we had actually pre-booked one of the electric mini-mokes for a day (8 hours) before we even left - we found him setting up in the carpark where you arrive (in Noumea, if you arrive at the working port they put you on shuttle buses to the other port, which has the visitor's centre - that's where the carpark is that he, and everyone else, sets up in)....he gave us some good tips on where to go, and pointed out we had to stay on the peninsula as you are not allowed to go onto the highway in these, but there is enough to see on the peninsula so that wasn't a problem. There is nowhere to lock your valuables which was the only thing we would have loved to have changed, but other than that, this was an absolutely awesome way to spend a day! So much more fun than a bus & much more flexible! Highly recommend it. It cost us roughly AUD$300 for 8 hours but we didn't have any regrets. It had plenty of battery and we had no problems at all with the car, just lots of fun! I was glad it had a roof on it as well as I had been worried about sunburn. Yay!
