As above poster said. Oceania and Australasia are just regions. The Continent itself is actually called Australia (as per the definition of a continent by the Oxford Dictionary).
You do realize that what's taught differs depending on what part of the world you come from. Latin Americans, Iberians, and Canadians use Australasia in their schools and text books.

If you want to incorporate New Zealand and all of the other islands and countries in the southern region, then it is Oceania or Australasia.

I know Australia dominates down there but New Zealand is still there and Auckland is a great city and home to the southern hemispheres tallest structure (Sky Tower).

Can't forget the little places, I obviously just miss worded my original post.
