Panorama of Central Vongane

Vongane is situated at the mouth of the Qagus River and is the second easternmost capital of a mainland Adulan country after Saint Johnstone, Raviannas.

The westernmost part of Vongane is occupied by the Manto Forest Park, a 10 km2 (4 sq mi) urban park, one of the largest in Adula, and occupying 10% of the municipality.

The city occupies an area of 100.05 km2 (39 sq mi), and its city boundaries, unlike those of most major cities, coincide with those of the municipality. The rest of the urbanised area of the Vongane urban area, known generically as Greater Vongane includes several administratively defined cities and municipalities, in the north bank of the Qagus River. The larger Vongane metropolitan area includes the Túbal Peninsula to the south.
