Oceania is a geographic region that includes Australasia, Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia. Spanning the Eastern and Western Hemispheres, Oceania is estimated to have a land area of 8,525,989 square kilometers and a population of over 41 million.

Australia and New Zealand's medley of mountains, deserts, reefs, forests, beaches and multicultural cities are an eternal draw for travelers. Take a stroll along the white-sand beaches where the wind and sea-spray are your only companions. For wildlife and nature lovers, experience up-close encounters with furry marsupials or swim with whale sharks in West Australia, hike through the jungle to swim under a waterfall in Fiji or be awed by snow-capped mountains and deep fiords of New Zealand.

For adventure seekers, New Zealand may be the capital of adventure sports where bungee jumping, zorbing and extreme skiing are just a few of the activities on offer. You can also undertake long distance walking trail, rock-climbing and parachuting here. Oceania has plenty to offer those who want to test their mettle. Are you ready for the adrenaline rush?
