http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australia_(continent)

Australia is a continent, but it can also be considered as an island in the larger continent of Oceania. So, both. Thread over and out.

Although, if you want to get technical:

Tis an ex-breeding ground for the scum of England...so...yeah...you're all convict spawns.

I come from australia, so here we go,

Australia is the largest island in the world, it is also the only continent to house only one country.
cheers
Come back if you want to
And remember who you are
‘Cause there's nothing here for you my dear
And everything must pass

australians, do they make up words to replace already established, perfectly good words or do they make up words?
Remember through sounds
Remember through smells
Remember through colors
Remember through towns

I don't even understand how there could be a discussion here. Since when are "island" and "continent" mutually exclusive in the first place?

This. The only thing that could cause discussion is the difference between the continent "Australia" and "Oceania" (which is Australia and some other countries).

Largest Island is Greenland. And yes, Oceania is the smallest continent.

A) Australia is 2,900,000 square miles. Greenland is 822,706. Which one's bigger again?
B) Oceania is not a continent.

What wat? It's not.

From Wikipedia:

"Oceania (sometimes Oceanica) is a geographical, often geopolitical, region consisting of numerous lands—mostly islands in the Pacific Ocean and vicinity. The term "Oceania" was coined in 1831 by French explorer Dumont d'Urville. The term is used today in many languages to define one of the continents and is one of eight terrestrial ecozones."


So, maybe the keywords here are "in many languages", because in my language, we define the continent you refer to as Oceania.

Theoratically you're right. But then again, Australia isn't considered an island, because its a country in its own right.

Island-wise, Greenland is the biggest island to be part of a country, Lars' one, u know?!

And no, the continent is called Oceania

it's both. GOD IM SURRONDED BY MORONS!

Like I said - numerous times now - it's not a continent if you define Oceania as a continent. Don't go calling me a moron for that.

So? CGCFAD is defined in many languages as "Drop C," that certainly doesn't make it right. You can't have a continent within a continent.
