Australia

Australia is by far the largest and most heavily populated country within Oceania. The geographical region of Oceania is centered on the islands in the Pacific Ocean. The term, coined in 1812 by Conrad Malte-Brun, was used to describe the area in the open Pacific that was largely unknown at the time. Initially it helped distinguish Australia as a continent. Oceania is broken into four regions; Australia, Melanesia, Micronesia, and Polynesia. The area is well known to this day for its enjoyable climate and love for sports such as rugby, soccer and cricket. Although many geographers argue over the exact specifications of Oceania, it has been widely recognized since it was named almost 200 years ago. It is also one of eight terrestrial ecozones that compose the major ecological regions of the planet. Oceania’s ecozone include Fiji, Micronesia and all of Polynesia except New Zealand.
