Land Area & Location
Aurora Province has a total land area of 323,954 hectares, representing about one percent of the country's total land area.
Aurora Province is located on the East-Central side of Luzon Island. It is the north-eastern most province of Central Luzon (Region III). It is bordered on the north by the provinces of Isabela and Qurino, on the west by Nueva Ecija and Nueva Viscaya, on the south by Bulacan and Quezon, and on the east by the Pacific Ocean. The province's main link to the rest of Luzon is through a narrow mountain gravel road that twists through the Sierra Madre Mountain Range. The road is located between Baler and Bongabon, Nueva Ecija.
The province of Aurora covers the eastern portion of the Sierra Madre Mountains, hence it is generally mountainous. There are flat lands unevenly distributed throughout the province. Its coastline spans 332 kilometers in length. The municipality of Dingalan, in the south, has the most irregular topography.
The main drainage systems of Aurora consist of six rivers:
- Aguang River, Baler
- Calabgan River, Casiguran
- Ditale River, Dipaculao
- Dibatuan River, Dipaculao
- Ibuna River, Dingalan
- Sinagnuan River, Dingalan
