The outlines of Oceania are not strictly defined. They are roughly the area limited to the archipelagos between Asia, Australia and the US West Coast.

At issue is sometimes the allocation of Papua New Guinea. Geographically the main part of the island belongs to Asia.Other parts are in the island chain of the Solomon Islands and therefore in Oceania. Politically ist is often even associated with Australia.

The area of Antarctica does not belong to Oceania. But for navigation purposes, we also listed it here.
