New Zealand is not on the same continental shelf and is part of a wider continental region called Australasia.

The continent (or, better therm: geographic region ) that includes Australia, New Zealand, and other Pacific islands is called Australia and Oceania. (Or it can be found by only one name: Oceania.)

Oceania, in the narrow sense, is the common name for many islands and island groups in the Pacific Ocean. In addition, Oceania consists of large island groups of Melanesia, Micronesia, Polynesia, and New Zealand as a special entity, the largest country in Oceania.
