Is Vanuatu in New Zealand?
New Zealand is not a part of any continent. Vanuatu is also not part of any continent. The two are quite separate and distinct groups of islands, approximately 2,939km or 1,826 miles apart. There are seven large landmasses on Earth that are commonly regarded as Continents - there is no strict criteria but used as general global and/or political destinations. "Oceania" contains Australia, New Zealand and some south Pacific islands such as Vanuatu, but it is not a continent in the geographic sense of the word.

What nation owns the volcanic islands around antarctica?
Asked in Antarctica, Islands
Are there any islands in Antarctica?
Sub-Antarctica islands are well defined and named. However, within the boundaries of the continent, there may be islands, but because the ice sheet covers 98% of the continent, and the ice sheet is so heavy, it pushes the land below sea level, identifying all the potential 'islands' that exist there is not possible.
