Western Province is the largest province in Papua New Guinea. It shares an international border with West Papua in Indonesia to the west and with Australia to the south. It is dominated in the north by the Hindenburg Range, while the Fly River runs through the south. Moderate incomes can be earned along the Fly River and near.Lake Murray from the sale of fish, food and crocodile skins. Elsewhere in the province, very low incomes can be earned from food, betel nut, animal skins, crocodiles and rubber. There is very little potential agricultural land. Royalties, wages and compensation from the Ok Tedi Mine also provide incomes in the province. Roads in the north connect Kiunga, Tabubil, the Ok Tedi Mine, Nomad and Lake Murray. Travel by canoe and outboard motor
s more common along the many rivers in the province. There are some limited roads around Morehead in the south which do not connect to other major service centres.
