Maps of Australia & Oceania

Oceania is the most isolated continent in the world, and its geographical barrier made it the last to be discovered by Europeans. Due to this delay in its discovery it became known as "new world".

As in America and Africa, Oceania was occupied by natives before the arrival of Europeans, then in a short time a large part of these peoples were practically decimated and those who remain claim their rights to this day.

The most isolated continent in the world consists of Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. Its configuration corresponds to a huge archipelago, with formation derived from volcanic eruptions. It is surrounded by the Indian Ocean to the west and the Pacific to the north, east and south.

Oceania has an area of ​​8.4 million km2, and this covers all hemispheres. The largest country on the continent is Australia. Besides, there are several islands scattered throughout the Pacific Ocean.

The largest country on the continent, Australia, is considered an island-continent, as it is located between the Pacific and the Indian Ocean with an area of ​​7.6 million km2 , which represents 90% of the total in Oceania. 

The territory of New Zealand is bathed by the Tasman Sea to the west, Pacific to the east, located entirely in the southern temperate zone. It is 1750 km from Australia to the east, and the country in question is considered an archipelago, as it consists of two main islands: one located to the north and the other to the south, between the two is the Cook Strait.

The set of islands scattered across the Pacific is divided into three: Micronesia (small islands), Melanesia (black islands) and Polynesia (many islands) which concentrates a large part of the islands in Oceania. Among all the islands, the most important are: Hawaii and French Polynesia - where Tahiti is located.

There are also eleven archipelago-states on the continent with small areas, of which the Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Marshall Islands, Solomon Islands, Kiribati, Nauru, Palau, Samoa, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu stand out.
