Tjibaou Cultural Centre


The Centre was designed by world famous architect Renzo Piano (designer of our very own Pacific Dawn and Pacific Jewel) and named in honour of the late Kanak leader, Jean Marie Tjibaou. Hear fascinating tales of Kanak myths and folklore on a guided walk through the shaded, flora-lined pathway leading to three imposing, traditional Melanesian huts from different regions. Within the main area, a guide will introduce the various exhibition rooms housing precious ritual masks and costumes, totem poles and sculptures, all of an exceptional standard.
