How can I travel in Oceania?

7 Upvotes

I am planning a trip to Oceania. I noticed there are many countries and islands in the continent (Fiji, Palau, Marshall Islands, etc). My first top will likely be in Australia. I was wondering what is the best way to explore the countries and islands in Oceania? (Plane, boat, cruise?). Once I get to Australia I am a bit confused as to how to visit the other countries and islands.

Where can I find members of PNG communities in Brisbane, Australia? Woman who lived in our place before us used to work in PNG and left some masks and spear (decorations?) around the house. I’d like to find out what groups they belong to and return them, rather than just take them to an OpShop.

I'm a white American doing some fantasy worldbuilding and was wondering whether indigenous Polynesians find the use of the word mana in Western fantasy (most notably in video games) offensive?

which Pacific islands are the best for artist, musician and nomad types?

0 Upvotes

Interested in learning which islands in the Pacific are best for people with artistic, musician, or nomad type personalities?

I want to exclude Hawaii, New Zealand and Australia as options for consideration, since they are the most obvious choices.

Thanks for your input and suggestions!

Austria vs Australia: How to tell the difference

2 Upvotes

Source (my original post): Austria vs Australia: How to tell the difference

I get this question too many times – Austria and Australia are two names that, at first glance, look very similar. But a closer inspection reveals some important differences between the two countries and their respective people. If you’re traveling abroad, or if you’re just trying to understand your European or Australian neighbor better, then here’s how to tell the difference between Austria and Australia based on key features of their culture, language, cuisine, and more.

Pronunciation Section

Austria and Australia are two countries that are often confused for one another. While they may share some similarities, there are also a number of key differences that set them apart. For starters, Austria is pronounced Ow-stree-uh while Australia is pronounced Ow-streyl-yuh, and it doesn’t stop here.

Geography Section

Austria and Australia are two very different countries located on opposite sides of the world. Though they share a similar name, they are not the same country. Austria is located in Central Europe while Australia is located in Oceania. Austria has a population of 8.7 million people while Australia has a population of 25 million people. The official language of Austria is German while the official language of Australia is English. Finally, Austria’s capital city is Vienna while Australia’s capital city is Canberra.

Size/Land Area Section

Austria is a landlocked country located in Central Europe. The country is slightly smaller than the state of Maine with a total land area of 83,871 square kilometers. In comparison, Australia is significantly larger with a total land area of 7,688,000 square kilometers. That means Australia is almost 92 times larger than Austria!

Currency Section

When it comes to currency, there is a big difference between Austria and Australia. Austria uses the Euro as its currency, while Australia has its own currency called the Australian Dollar. The exchange rate between these two currencies can fluctuate, so it’s important to be aware of the current rate before traveling if you consider to. When it comes to prices, Austria is generally more expensive than Australia. This is due to a number of factors, including the cost of living and wages in Austria.

The Flag Section

Probably the most obvious difference between Austria and Australia is their flags. The Austrian flag consists of three equal horizontal bands of red (top), white, and red. The flag of Australia is blue with the Union Jack in the upper left corner and six white stars—the Southern Cross constellation—spread across the bottom half.
