The largest part of Oceania can be found in the Pacific, which is known as the vast body of water larger than the total continental landmasses of the Earth in general. Oceania is dominated by Australia.

Two other landmasses of Oceania are the micro continent of Zealander, which includes New Guinea, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. Three other island regions are the part of Oceania: Micronesia, Melanesia and Polynesia (with the U.S. state of Hawaii).
