Merauke is the 2nd easternmost city in Indonesia (Jayapura to the north coast is first), lying on the south coast of Papua province, facing the Arafura Sea, 68 km west of the border with Papua New Guinea. It lies on the eastern bank of Maro River, with its tidal swamps and oxbow lakes that are home to many birds and reptiles. Merauke was established in 1902 as a military post by the Dutch, and the site of an Allied air base during WWII. The province is covered by forests, large areas of which have a tenuous future, with deforestation, land-grabbing and forest fires of concern.

The centre of Merauke is flat and orderly with low buildings, large central Al-Aqsha Mosque, national statues and monuments (both national and religious). The Merauke Zero Kilometer Monument has a twin in the westernmost city Sabang in Aceh, thus defining the extremities of Indonesia. City sights include the Cathedral of St. Francis Xavier, the open air town markets, and motorcycle racing along the beach and in the bush. Old graveyards and lots of classic churches highlight the town, while cruising down the Maro River one can observe the daily life of Papuan fishermen. Indigenous locals are most welcoming.

Four kilometres from the city centre is Lampu Satu (Single Light) Beach that features a picturesque lighthouse. The city is called Deer Town after the rusa deer introduced by the Dutch. Wasur National Park 60km to the east is a low-lying wetland with intertidal mudflats and mangroves, savannahs and monsoon forest. The site is filled with rare and endemic species of birds, and wallabies, not unlike the Australian bush. The Merauke regency is also known for its Asmat wood carvings, sought world wide.
