Oceania's an ode to Earth's beautiful oceans

Oceania sounds a lot like ocean and for good reason. This vast region is home to thousands of islands in the Pacific that make up Polynesia, Melanesia, and Micronesia. There are also the countries of New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, and the entire continent of Australia. An Oceania vacation rental is a great place to find an exotic island where white-sand beaches melt into unclouded aqua water. There are tiny villages with unique cultures you can't find anywhere else in the world, plus sophisticated cities too, like Melbourne and Sydney.

Oceania: a great place to turn over a new reef

Vistors drive the economies of many of these tiny, remote islands, so that means there's always lots to do. If your Oceania vacation rental isn't on a beach, it's likely near one, so turn off that phone and do a little relaxing at an area tiki bar. Make some time to explore the ocean floor, because the beauty of the reefs is beyond belief. Surfers can ride the world-famous waves off Australia's Gold Coast. And if you're more inclined towards urban areas, check out Sydney, Melbourne, or Brisbane, or New Zealand's Auckland.

It's not only the beaches that are attractive

Oh, those Aussies have some stunning attractions, starting with the skyline-dominating Sydney Opera House. And if you fancy a walkabout in the Never Never (one of many nicknames for the Outback), see the massive Ayers Rock at Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park. For a deeper dive, you have the Great Barrier Reef in Queensland, and smaller but still spiffy reefs around Fiji, Samoa, and New Caledonia. In New Zealand, see the geothermal pools at Waiotapu, the Waitoma Glowworm caves, or the active volcanoes at Tongariro National Park. Or Tasmania's Museum of New and Old Art.

Oceania's summer is the northern hemisphere's winter

Seasons are a bit upside down in the southern hemisphere, where summer is from December to February and winter is June to August. That's if there is a season at all. Many Oceania vacation rentals are in places with tropical climates, which means hot weather all year, and a few months of brief, heavy rains and even tropical storms, typically from December to April. Northern Australia also has a tropical climate, while much of the rest of it is arid. Conversely, New Zealand is temperate, wth 4 separate seasons, lots of rain and depending on where you are, snow.

Beat around the bush, scale a mountain, or laze on the beach

Let's not beat around the bush: most of Australia's landscape is made up of the desert plains of the Outback. New Zealand is the southernmost nation in Oceania, and its geography ranges from snow-capped mountains, glaciers, and volcanoes to sandy coastal plains. Then there are volcanic islands like Fiji and the Solomon Islands, and the low-lying, tiny atolls of Micronesia and Polynesia. These archipelagos often have shallow, sandy beaches and encircle lagoons full of pristine, calm water. Not surprisingly, these lush, remote areas are home to species you can't find anywhere else in the world.
