It is located along the main federal highway linking the south of Sabah to Kota Kinabalu, and is one of the main stops on the North Borneo Railway. The Papar area is characterised by low-lying coastal areas which extend inland towards the Crocker Range. Such land was traditionally used for growing rice, and the flat paddy fields once common in the district may have given it its name.
