Pulau Workai/Barakai

barakai.jpgThe largest island in South-East Aru is home to 4 villages: the twin villages of Longgar-Aparra as well as Bemun in the north, and Mesian in the south. These villages are as traditional as any in Aru, and thus an interesting diversion to visiting the nature reserves. The interior of the island is still forested, though up north it has more open landscape somewhat remiscent of Australia.
