Travel Oceania with us
The smallest of all continents, Oceania is a collection of thousands of
islands of the South-Pacific region with a total land area of 8,536,716
square kilometers. Oceania is a term used to describe a continental
region between Asia and Americas. However, which countries constitute
this continent varies. While some believe the Pacific regions including
the volcanic islands of the South Pacific Ocean like the Melanesia and
Polynesia groups and Australia, New Zealand, and Papua New Guinea, are a
part of it, others exclude New Zealand and mainland New Guinea. This
division varies due to the bio-geographical and eco-geographical
division of the islands in this region.
Ranging from seasonally dry to humid, this continent has tropical and
subtropical climate most of the year. Most parts of Oceania are group
islands that rose from the sea due to great activity of tectonic plates
leading to volcanism. The region is beautifully dispersed with
sun-kissed beaches, rich flora, diverse fauna, and now, artistically and
intricately designed man-made structures.
Divided into two regions, migrants, Papuans make up the Near Oceania
part of the continent, and Austronesian speakers house in the Remote
Oceania. Christianity is the dominant religion here, but in the recent
times, the population of Oceania define themselves as ‘no religion,'
fast moving towards atheism, secular humanism, and rationalism.
This, however, remains of one of the most fascinating and diverse areas
on the planet. Tourism remains a prime sector of income for this part of
the world, with exotic Fiji Islands known to be one of the most
promising destinations. The people of the region enjoy multi-sports, the
prominent ones being cricket, soccer, and rugby. Australia has also
been host to the Olympics and Commonwealth Games- two times and three
If you belong to any other part of the world, a visit to Oceania will
define for you the true meaning of the spirit of living life.
