Much of Australia is flat and very dry; the fertile coastal plain along the east coast is separated from the interior by the Great Dividing Range. The Pacific islands of Oceania mostly consist of coral reefs or have volcanic origins. Micronesia generally consists of the northern islands which lie between Palau and the Gilbert Islands, Melanesia stretches from Papua New Guinea to Fiji, and Polynesia includes the islands in the eastern and central South Pacific Ocean. The Tourism Australia site features extensive travel information about Australia.
The largest city in Oceania is Sydney, Australia. Other leading cities include Melbourne, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand. Travelers to Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific often fly to the region via Qantas or Air New Zealand. The Sydney Morning Herald is a good source of news about Australasia.
