The continent of Australia consists of the land masses which sit on Australia’s continental shelf, overlain by shallow seas which divide it into several landmasses, that include Mainland Australia, Tasmania and Island of New Guinea. It is situated in the geographical region of Oceania and is the smallest of the seven continents. New Zealand is not a part of the continent of Australia, but of the separate submerged continent of Zealandia. New Zealand and Australia are both part of the sub Oceanian region known as Australasia with New Guinea being in Melanasia. Within Oceania are the vast island nation groupings of Polynesia to the Far East, Melanasia to the west and Micronesia to the north. Australasia covers approximately 5.3% of Earth’s land and 1.5% of the Earth’s surface. Australasia/Oceania is the least populated continent after Antartica with a growth rate of nearly 1.3% every year. The first Australians are understood to have come about 40,000 to 60,000 years ago from New Guinea and Indonesia establishing a population of at least 350,000 before the arrival of the first European settlers.
Australasia/Oceania is home to glistening beaches, coconut palms swaying in the breeze, beautiful coral reefs, and rugged volcanic islands rising out of the blue ocean. Its diverse nations have soe of the world’s most cosmopolitan and internationalised cities such as Melbourne and some its most remote and culturally isolated villages.
Australia - Is by far the largest and most populous country in the Oceania. It is world famous for its natural wonders such as (Great Barrier Reef), wide open spaces, its beaches, deserts, “the Bush” and the “Outback”.
New Zealand - A country of stunning and diverse natural beauty, jagged mountains, rolling pasture land, steep fjords, pristine trout filled lakes, raging rivers, scenic beaches and active volcanic zones. Technically said to part of Polynesia as the indigenous Maori are Polynesian and provide a major hub to the rest of Polynesia.
Papua New Guinea - Known for its vast Tropical rainforest, green scenery and culture. An adventurous destination, but rarely visited.
Polynesia - Most far flung easterly region of Oceania, no other names quite conjures up images of paradise like Polynesia – stunning paradisical islands sprawling for thousands of miles across the remote South Pacific.
Melanesia - Closely related to the ethno-cultural make up of the oft included Papua new Guinea, Melanesia is home to the always popular destination of Fiji.
Micronesia - The tiny Micronesian Islands fall on or north of the Equator, and see less tourist and business travel than the rest of the island groupings. It you are looking for a unique, mystical, beautiful destination, you should aim for Palau and its popular rock islands. Kayak tours and enthusiasts enjoy this area, and the caves accesed from the waterside.
