If Australia was considered an island, then Greenland wouldn't be the biggest island in the world, would it? Bananal makes the wikipedia list, so who am I to disagree:)

Why is Australia not allowed to be an Island Continent? Besides, "Oceania" is listed under every featured quiz to do with it, with Australia as a country inside of the continent; similar to how India is in Asia.

@gjcsarris Yes, that's completely correct! If Australia was considered an island, then Greenland wouldn't be the biggest island in the world. I took no point. :)

Australia has own plate. Greenland have not.
So Australia is continent and Greenland is island close to North America.

Mainland Australia is bigger than Greenland, and it is still deemed an island.

There are other countries on the Australian plate, so no, it doesn't have its own plate. Australia is regarded as the mainland of the plate and therefore not an island (which is convention rather than hard science).

Which is funny, because the fact that Australia is a continent or an island mainly depends from where you live. In France, it's considered an island, the biggest of the world, part of the Oceanian continent. It's just a matter of convention, like the definition of what America is.

I absolutely consider Australia an island and not a continent in itself. I don't understand why it is always excluded from being an island on this site, even if you do consider it to be a continent. DudiJG - the Arabian peninsular has its own plate and generally isn't thought of as a continent, not sure why you would think that is an argument..

@DudiJG a tiny portion of Western Washington state is on its own plate. Does the mean that when I vacationed to Seattle I visited the great continent of Juan de Fuca? No, of course not, plates don't define continents.

You're someone who can write a Wikipedia article, just like the person who wrote the article you're referencing. Never cite Wikipedia as any more accurate than any other random person you're talking to on the internet.

Very surprised at some. Some close calls that I found were USA (Big Island -10,434 km2 and Kodiak Island - 9,310 km2), Denmark (Greenland - 2,130,800 km2 and Qeqertarsuaq (Disko) - 8,612 km2), and Chile (Isla Grande Tierra del Fuego - 47,401 km2 and Chiloe - 8,478). Really makes the American inside me have to learn the metric system :P

For over 500 years. From the start of the Kalmar union in 1397 until 1918 when Iceland became free and independant. Although not a republic until 1944. We will celebrate 100 years of independance December 1st. Yippee!
