Geographers apply the name Oceania to an enormous and diverse region of the Pacific. It includes Australia, Papua New Guinea, New Zealand and the Pacific Islands in Melanesian, Micronesian and Polynesian chains.

Its diverse nations have both some of the world’s most cosmopolitan and internationalised cities such as Melbourne, and some of its most remote and culturally isolated villages.
