hinterland (noun) area away from the coast, a river, or from the main cities.

A hinterland is the area away from the coast, a large river, or from the main cities of a country. Usually, the people in the hinterland take to cultivation while those along the coast turn fishermen. The hinterland is usually covered by thick forests.

  • As the coastal area is hilly, the population in the hinterland is larger than that along the coast.
  • The hinterland of the country with its tropical woods provides a habitat for a variety of wild animals.
