Introduction

Surrounded by huge spans of the Pacific and Indian Oceans, Oceania is a long way away from the rest of the world. Thanks to its remoteness, the island nations that make up this region have had time to develop their own different very distinct identities and cultural traditions.

Comprised of the thousands of islands and coral atolls that surround Australasia, this region includes heavily touristed resort areas like Fiji and Tahiti as well as remote and secluded islands like Taha’a or the less bougie Niue, where there are less than 90 hotel rooms, total.

Learning about the Moai statues on Rapa Nui, snowboarding in New South Wales, trekking through the rainforests of Papua New Guinea, volunteering in Christchurch, or bar-hopping in Melbourne — Oceania has an overwhelming number of options to choose from. Here, you can find all of the first-hand information you need to help you decide on your next Oceania destination.
