What continent is New Zealand on?
New Zealand is part of the continent Oceania,and Australasia, believe it or not they both exist at once but dependent on the situation ie;FIFA WORLD CUP,it will be classed as OCEANIA as to allow certain South East Asian countries to join. But....generally it's Australasia for all intents and purposes. I'm luckily a dual national of BRITISH&AUSTRALIAN backgrounds,having been born in England then migrating to Australia at 3 month's old!!! raised in Australia until 14(and Hong Kong for a year at 6,then back to England. So having been lucky enough to have such a "colourful" upbringing I know enough about this topic my brother. ..yo ,bless n peace out 😉✊🙏
Australia or Oceania. New Zealand is one of my favourite countries, even though it is isn't in Europe, and it is easy to speak. Australia is a continent and country, threatened by wildfires all the time.
i dont think i could answer this, not that smart to be able too?!? 😅
This is actually pretty contested. If you go by the seven “traditional” continents (North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, Antarctica), New Zealand wouldn’t be on any continent.
It is, however, part of Oceania, which is a large geographic region (very similar to a continent) including Australia, New Zealand, and about 10,000 other islands in the Pacific Ocean.
The coolest answer to this question, though, is that New Zealand is on its own continent of Zealandia. Some scientists argue that what we think of as the islands of New Zealand are just the peaks of the mountains of Zealandia, and the rest of the landmass is submerged. This theory isn’t widely recognized, but it is pretty neat.
Oceania; New Zealand is not part of the continent of Australia, but of the separate, submerged continent of Zealandia. New Zealand and Australia are both part of the Oceaniansub-region known as Australasia, with New Guinea being in Melanesia.
New zealand is it's own small continent, however most of the actual continental shelf is underwater.
New Zealand isn't on a continent. it is two islands that are west of Australia and south of the Fijian islands
New Zealand and the islands of the Pacific are not considered
part of a continent, but New Zealand is variously grouped (as is
New Guinea) with the continent of Australia or with the
larger conglomeration of Oceania, which, by definition, is
not a geographical continent. New Zealand consists of two main and
some smaller islands, and most of this territory sits on the
Australian tectonic plate but straddles the plate boundary.
Australia and Oceania are two completely different things.
Australia (a continent) lies within the political region known as
Oceania, which comprises also the islands of New Guinea, New
Zealand and various other island nations in the South Pacific.
New Zealand is the above-water part of a continental mass called
Zealandia, about the size of India, and most of which has
never been above the water's surface.
Continents are defined by their landmass block, which is
generally taken to be out to the edge of the Continental Shelf,
where the contours drop off steeply to the abyssal deeps.
