AustraNesia

Cairns, Far North Queensland, Australia, is a melting pot of diversity and these regions are well represented in its population. It is the hub and gateway to local, outlying and Cape York First Nations communities. It is the closest mainland Australian city offering direct flights to the Torres Strait Islands and the Melanesian country of Papua New Guinea. It has become home to many Polynesian immigrants, many of whom relocate here because of the tropical climate, vegetation and waters they are akin to in their islands.

Australia

Mainland Australia is the eastern most location within the geographic region of Oceania, northwest of its southern neighbour New Zealand and it’s northern neighbour Papua New Guinea.

Torres Strait Islands

Torres Strait Islands lies in the waterways between Cape York Peninsula in the far north of mainland Australia and beneath the island of New Guinea.

Polynesia

Polynesia (Poly = many, Nesia -islands) includes islands within the Polynesian Triangle from Hawaii in the north, New Zealand in the south and Easter Island. Although Micronesia is also part of Oceania, they are not prevalent in number in the Cairns population.

Melanesia

Melanesia (Mela = black, Nesia –islands) extends from eastern coast of New Guinea to New Caledonia, Fiji and Vanuatu in the West including Solomon Islands and the Bismarck Archipelago in the north.
