Australia (plus Oceania) is the world’s smallest continent, it has 14 countries, spans a total area of 9,008,500 km2 and forms 5.9% of the landmass of the world. Australasia is a region of Oceania that includes New Zealand, Australia and Melanesia. Many of the Pacific island countries are then located in subregions called Micronesia, Melanesia and Polynesia. These regions are populated largely around the coastal areas and include some of the most beautiful landscapes the world has to offer. There also exists considerable diversity across, and even within, the countries in Oceania. As a volunteer in Australia, you can discover infinite red desert-like landscapes and beautiful winding coastlines while as a volunteer in New Zealand, you can come across frosted lakes and dramatic snow-tipped mountains. Fiji encapsulates island living with twisting palms and clear ocean waters and Papua New Guinea allows a glance into the truly wild with endless greenery and untouched coastlines.
