To park for an hour, the rate has been increased by… 100%. An increase of this magnitude is bound to arouse a great deal of public discontent. There isn’t even a free half-hour, as there is in some car parks. In the long-term car park, prices have quadrupled. You have to pay 14,000 francs (179 Australian dollars) for one week and 48,000 francs (614 Australian dollars) for four weeks.

Significantly cheaper in New Caledonia
New Caledonians will be pleased to know that car park prices in La Tontouta are extraordinarily low compared with Tahiti… The first twenty minutes are free. The next hour is 200 francs ($2.5 aus). For more than two hours, the price is 100 francs ($1.2 aus) per hour. For more than 24 hours, the extra day costs 1000 francs (12.8$ aus) per day. For how long?
