The Sepik River is the longest river on the island of New Guinea. It is 1,126 kilometres long and one of the great river systems of the world. Biologically, the river system is possibly the largest uncontaminated freshwater wetland system in the Asia-Pacific region. The people along the river depend on it heavily for transporation, water and food. The Sepik River has no actual river delta and stains the sea brown for 50 kilometres. It is said islanders off the coast can draw fresh water straight from the sea.
