Abau district is located in the south east of Central Province. The district covers the coastal areas west of Milne Bay and the
mountains and valleys of the Owen Stanley Ranges. There is potential for increased agricultural activities in the
coastal plains of the district, especially north of Kupiano, and incomes are high from food sales in the Cape Rodney land
settlement area. However, the population living in the coastal swamps and in isolated areas earn low incomes from
food, fishing, betel nut, coconut and coffee. The land in these areas has poor agricultural potential.
