I need some help determing what ocean Australia is located in. The question on my study guide says, "Australia is located in the southeast __________ Ocean. I see it is surrounded by the Southern Ocean, Indian Ocean, and Pacific Ocean. I'm not sure which one to pick. Thanks.
Well, it is located in the south WEST Pacific
and NORTH of the southern ocean
but indeed in the
SOUTHEAST Indian Ocean.
The question is a bit silly because all 3 oceans touch Australia but it is Southeast only of the Indian Ocean
Many geographers don't recognize the Southern Ocean as a separate ocean. Since your description is the southeast part of an ocean, which of the three oceans must it be?
