Kerema District borders Central Province in the east and
Morobe Province in the north. It stretches across the Albert and
Stanithorp ranges and the Tauri and Lakekamu rivers.
The river plains and valleys of the district have a moderate to
high potential for agriculture, but are subject to flooding. Some
incomes are derived from the sale of food and betel nut locally
and in markets in Port Moresby, and some wage employment
and royalties are available from forestry.
