Cheap Flights to Oceania
The continent of Oceania comprises of Australia, Micronesia, Melanesia and Polynesia. Oceania was the last continent to be colonized by man. Even though the Australian Aborigines have been a part of Australia for the last 40,000 years the inaccessibility of this gigantic island kept it hidden from the rest of the civilized world until just 400 years ago. Oceania is named as such because unlike other continents Oceania has an ocean that connects many parts of the region with each other. This mysterious continent of the southern hemisphere contains countries like Australia and New Zealand that are highly developed and those that are still worshipped for their raw beauty like Tuvalu and Kiribati.
The climate of Oceania ranges from equatorial rainforest weather to hot desert climate. Papua New Guinea's rainforest is the oldest in the world. The rainforest is not only home to the unique and endangered species but also are able to create their own weather. The clouds that ascend from the forest in the heat of the day condense back into rain by night. South into Australia, the Outback is a dry and desolate area, however, the strange features of the land makes it an interesting place to visit. South Australia has a more temperate Mediterranean climate. New Zealand also has a similar climate but has slightly colder winters.
