  1. re:but.. – yeah same here cause australia doesn’t make up intirelly austrilasia so it should be classed as an island

  2. aussie aussie aussie – by some deffinition, Australia is too msall to be a continent (thus the pacific islands nations and NZ are a part of our continent), so we must be classed as an island. thus we (as in, australia) must be an island.

  3. … – I don’t know about this myself, but I just did a quick search and in the list of the Largest Islands, Tasmania (in Australia) was classed 26. Australia itself was not in the list, so I suppose it isn’t classed as an island for some reason.

    Incidentally, the person that posted this fact was right concerning the order.

    However… another website had the title “Which is the second largest island in the world, now that Australia is considered the biggest”. So maybe it is now. I don’t know. P.S. I realise I have way too much spare time.
