Australia should be counted as an island. It's surrounded by water. Big water. Ocean water.

My first answers were the South Island of course, and Ross Island. Everyone in New Zealand knows about Mt Erebus in Antarctica because tragically a sightseeing plane crashed there in 1979 killing all 257 people on board, mostly from NZ.

I didn't even look at mountain names. For me this was a "Name Every Island You Can Think Of" quiz. Looking back over the answers, I would only have known four of the mountains.
