Actually Australia is a continent. And I believe (although I'm not 100% sure and I'm too lazy for google) there are active underwater volcanoes.

Right time to educate you *************.

Australia is a continent and country, only one in the world. I have not heard anyone here in Aus call the continent Oceania. A continent by description is just very large landmass, no islands. Oceania is a region that includes Australia, New Zealand and the many island countries of the South Pacific, not a continent.

tl;dr Australia = Continent
Oceania = Region

Most europeans call the Americas, including canada, north and south as one continent. Including Scotland, although the UK is all different teaching systems so I can't speak for the others. That's why we call them north and south america. I refuse to argue the point any further because everybody calls them something different, but we call them what we were taught at school and that was my teaching.

Simple google search:

Number of continents
There are numerous ways of distinguishing the continents:

The seven-continent model is usually taught in China, India, parts of Western Europe and most English-speaking countries.

The six-continent combined-America model is used in Spanish-speaking countries[24] and in some parts of Eastern Europe including Greece (equivalent 5 inhabited continents model (i.e. excluding Antarctica) still also found in texts).[18]
Using this latter model as a starting point, the International Olympic Committee uses only inhabited continents (excluding Antarctica) and thus a five-continent model[16][17] as depicted in the Olympic logo.[25]
The terms Oceania or Australasia are sometimes substituted for Australia to denote a region encompassing the Australian continent and various islands of the Pacific Ocean that are not included in the seven-continent model. For example, the Atlas of Canada names Oceania,[20] as does the model taught in Italy, Greece[18] and in Latin America, Spain and Portugal.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Continent

Now stop fighting, they just teach it differently everywhere!

1. Australia is not a continent, it is a country.
2. If it meant Australasia/Oceania then it is wrong, there are active volcanoes in this continent.

I haven't seen a single correct one of these. Are they deliberately wrong?

It really depends in what country you are born and what they define continent. some say Australia others Oceania
in Belgium we often say that a world part is a continent.
However it clearly make people butthurt if you say Oceania is a continent.
Even you have learned otherwise.

in the article is says region not a union, that implies everything in and between the listed islands/continents included (it said it includes part of eurasia as well) which would be water, making it not a landmass and thus not a continent. Also, nowhere in the article does it say that "Oceania" is a continent, its just simply a "geographical region". If you wanna say that makes something a continent then we might as well call the earth a continent while we're at it.
