The content of “Australasia” has been replaced with the administrative regions in use in the five Australian states and the two self-governing territories. As evident in the annotated list below, the previous list of articles for “Australasia” suffered from the following:
Sufficient overlapping of the parts of the Earth’s surface under discussion
Inconsistent subject matter (i.e. pure geography or physical geography) which lacks a regional focus (i.e. large parts of the Australian continent vs. relatively small parcels of land) and includes several bodies of water,
Off-topic content, i.e. two “places” located in other parts of Oceania,
And did not include any articles that discuss the state of Tasmania.
Gulf of Carpentaria – a gulf on the north coast of the Australian continent (and which appear twice in the template)
