Flights to New Caledonia from cities in Australia vary in duration depending on the route. Australia has a lot of cities where you can depart from, but the three most common are Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane. Since New Caledonia is a relatively small island nation, it has only one international airport in the city of Paita, where all New Caledonia flights land. Sydney to Paita flights generally take around 3h to 7h. Flights from Melbourne take around six to 11h, although some take longer due to stopovers at Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport (SYD). Brisbane to Paita flights generally range from six to 11h, and the long flights are due to a long wait at Sydney Airport along the way.
