Alotau District stretches from the mountains at the end of the
Owen Stanley Ranges to the coastal areas of the south eastern
end of the mainland.
Land potential is high in the south of the province, while the
north experiences a long dry season and occasional droughts.
Businesses in Alotau and oil palm enterprises provide some
income-earning opportunities, as well as markets for the sale of
fresh food, betel nut and coconut.
