Oceania : the lands of the Central and South Pacific including Micronesia, Melanesia, Polynesia (including New Zealand), often Australia, and sometimes the Malay Archipelago — Webster

The term is often used more specifically to denote a continent comprising Australia and proximate islands or biogeographically as a synonym for either the Australasian ecozone (Wallacea and Australasia) or the Pacific ecozone (Melanesia, Polynesia, and Micronesia, excluding both New Zealand and mainland New Guinea). — Wikipedia
