Oceania is the smallest continent in the world. People usually think it covers just Australia, but it’s really much more than that: it covers over 20 islands in the Pacific Ocean. The bigger ones are Australia, New Zealand and New Guinea, the smaller ones are Polynesia, Melanesia and Micronesia.
New Zealand is considered one of the most beautiful and most natural countries on this planet. And we absolutely agree! Accommodations are well organised so travellers can enjoy the beautiful sceneries to the fullest. New Zealand really has everything, it is like a complete universe in itself. Active volcanoes, gigantic glaciers, tropical bays, snow covered mountain tops and gushing geysers.
Australia is the largest country in Oceania. In contrast to its size, there are “only” 22 million inhabitants. This is because large parts of the country consist of desert, the Great Sandy Desert. But there are lots of interesting cities to be visited. Take for example Cairns, very much worth a visit. It used to be the turning spot for the gold trade. Nearby you can find Kuranda, a village in the middle of tropical vegetation. Fun detail: you can reach it by cable car! Or see Whitsundays, known for its unique sailing. You can sail by the golden beaches and meet the locals: tropical fish and beautiful sea turtles. As you see, Australia is a place worth discovering.
The island groups of New Guinea, Polynesia, Melanesia and Micronesia each have their very own culture, fauna and flora, which makes each island unique and an experience in itself.
