Noumea to Koumac

We have returned to Noumea today to pick up our newly filled scuba tanks, that done, the morning will see us getting some nice French pastries etc, then off to Koumac where we will clear out for Australia, via the Chesterfield Reef. If the weather permits, we will spend a day or two at the reef before heading to Bundaberg for clear in formalities and to give AQIS some money, they charge even us Ausies to come home!
