New Caledonia is situated in the south western Pacific, just north of the tropic of Capricorn, and is the most southern of the Melanesian nations. Grand Terre is by far the largest island, being 400km long and just 50km wide, and unlike all other islands in the Pacific, it was once joined to Australia and broke away about 140 million years ago.
