Australia is just one country, with about six states and two territories. The little island to the south of Australia is called Tasmania and is, technically, a part of Austrailia. It has a number of members in the Federal Parliament in Canberra, for innstance. However, I visited there in about 1975 and I found the island lked to think of itself as a separate nation.
Yes. The Australian continent consists of Australia, Papua New Guinea, Timor Leste and some parts of Indonesia. It does NOT include New Zealand. New Zealand is actually on a sumerged continent called Zealandia. Australia and New Zealand are both part of a region called Oceania, along with numerous other pacific islands of Polynesia, Melanesia and Micronesia.
He wasnt saying it was part of the country, Australia, he was saying it was part of the continent Australia which is a fairly common misconception, so its hardly offensive. And considering we are your closest neighbour, our countries ARE associated, so grow up.
Australia is called the Commonwealth of Australia which makes it a country and the worlds smallest continent it has 6 states and various territories,its Capital is Canberra and its largest city is Sydney :)
Technically, Australia is the largest island in the world. Many people do not associate Australia as an island but a country. We are also part of Asia. Dianelle is right, Australia belong to Australasia.
They may be associated but they are not apart of the continent. You just don't like people expressing their opinions on your country. Looks like you're the one who needs to grow up :)
I don't think Antarctica has anything, lol. But it looks like Australia has territories? Or states? Not sure which of the two. Anyway, good luck with your Hw Morgan :D
New Zealand is part of the region of Oceania (also known as Australasia) but its actually on a different continent which is submerged so no one knows about it!
You should try travelling to Melbourne, the Capital of the State of Victoria. Melbourne is a gaint city and will soon overtake Sydney as Australia's largest.

ahh. well, i hope this isnt cheating, but australia doesnt have any countries, and idk if antarctica does or not lol.
