Oceania is a region of the world unlike any other. Here, the waters of the Pacific Ocean separate diverse nations like Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Samoa, as well as overseas territories such as French Polynesia. The landscapes are dramatic and lush; the cultures are rich and varied; the histories are ancient and storied. Getting to this region can be challenging, but those who venture to Oceania will be well-rewarded for their efforts. Below are travel destinations across Oceania that are a must-visit for any avid traveler:

Choose Your Oceanic Destination
Australia is filled with incredible natural beauty: Uluru and the Outback, rainforests and pristine white sand beaches, and of course, the Great Barrier Reef. Sydney’s Harbor Bridge and Opera House are iconic man-made wonders, and Melbourne’s café culture will make you feel like you’re relaxing in Europe.
New Zealand
New Zealand’s amazing National Parks, glacier trekking and many extreme sports make it a beautiful place for those who seek adventure and adrenaline! From great metropolitan cities, rolling hills, Ancient Kauri trails, surf breaks, wine and food, glaciers and treks—there is something for everyone.
French Polynesia
French Polynesia is one of the Pacific’s most popular tourist destinations and is home to breathtaking islands like Tahiti and Bora Bora. With diverse marine life, the region boasts some of the most spectacular diving in the world. Plus, the volcanic peaks and pristine white beaches are straight out of a postcard!
Easter Island
Visiting Easter Island is the ultimate Oceania bucket list trip. There's nothing quite like having the chance to discover every corner of the Rapa Nui National Park, gawking at moai statues and learning the history of the Rapa Nui people. Because Rapa Nui, the westernmost territory of Chile, is located in Polynesia, it is considered that geographically Easter Island is part of the continent of Oceania.
Fiji’s palm-dotted sandy beaches, turquoise waters and warm weather are the stuff of fantasies. Blessed with pristine coral reefs, it’s also a major snorkeling and diving destination and the breaks are good for surfers too. When you tire of kicking back, you can hike, sea-kayak or river raft before falling back once more into the easy laid-back rhythm of the islands.
Being part of the United States automatically places Hawaii as part of the North American continent, but as far as the world is concerned, that is just political. The island of Hawaii is 2000 miles away from the nearest point of the United States, and this places the island right in the middle of the Oceania region which is considered to be the 7th continent.
