Indonesian authorities have warned a group of Australian activists not to sail to the country's disputed Papua region today, or risk being intercepted and arrested.

The group, called the Freedom Flotilla, is preparing three boats to sail from Cairns to the Papuan provinces, to highlight the need for peace and stability in the area.

The crew includes Aboriginal elders, West Papuan refugees, filmmakers and other activists.

But the deputy chief of Papuan police, Paulus Waterpauw, says unauthorised boat arrivals will be intercepted by the navy and likely be detained by immigration authorities.

He says anybody in the group who has a criminal record or is on the country's wanted list will face arrest.

Indonesian president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has also issued a strong warning to other countries, saying they should not violate Indonesia's sovereignty and upset Indonesians.

He says the Papuan provinces are part of Indonesia and that should be respected.
