Is Hawaii in Oceania? Isn't Oceania the Pacific below the equator?
+1
level 73
Oct 21, 2018
It is in Oceania. There's nothing about equator in the definition, surely all the little pacific islands are included? Or to quote Wikipedia: "The islands at the geographic extremes of Oceania are Bonin Islands, a politically integral part of Japan; Hawaii, a state of the United States; Clipperton Island, a possession of France; the Juan Fernández Islands, belonging to Chile; and the Campbell Islands, belonging to New Zealand. "

Hawaii is part of Polynesia and is now considered in one of the four regions of Oceania, but politically it is part of the US and I've also seen it included with North America. It depends on which source you check. When I was in school decades ago it wasn't considered part of any continent, and some still have that point of view today. So, take your pick.

Papua New Guinea is part of Oceania, but Oceania is not a continent, it is a world region. Only Australia is counted as a continent and thus the answer should be Mt Kosciuszko, not Mt Wilhelm.

The header simply asks "Biggest land masses in Oceania". It has nothing to do with whether Oceania is a continent or not, so I'm not sure why akp713 is trying to debate that.

I think akp713 is referring to the "Tallest mountain on each continent" question, actually.

But actually the highest mountain on New Guinea isn't Mt. Wilhelm, but Puncak Jaya. Over 300m higher. And it is still part of the Oceania

On all of JetPunk's featured quizzes, Oceania includes Papua New Guinea but not the Indonesian portion of New Guinea. Does it make sense? No. But continent boundaries don't always make sense.

OK, I understand the logic now. But still think there should be consistency with the Seven Summits quiz (and, before anyone tells me, I do realise that those aren't consistently listed outside of this site). Mt Wilhelm threw me completely and, judging by the stats, most others too.

you should just accept all three versions because i have seen many who say highest mount in Oceania is puncak jaya, wilhelm or kosciuzko

The How to Play note about Oceania and Indonesia I assume was to clarify the tallest mountain question. But it confuses things for the largest land masses in Oceania question. The note says Oceania includes no part of Indonesia, but one of the answers, New Guinea, includes part of Indonesia.

In the Highest Point section, Oceania is technically not a continent, so you should clarify/change that. If you actually do mean 'continent' (ie: Australia), the answer should be Mount Kosciuszko.

You should definitely accept Puncak Jaya or Mount Kosciuszko. If you say continent you should probably stick to the continental landmass of Australia and the answer would be Mount Kosciuszko. If for some reason you want to include Papua New Guinea and Mount Wilhelm than you should definitely include Puncak Jaya. The question refers to continents which should in no way be determined by political geography.
