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?
