Where is the country of New Guinea?

Lying just south of the equator, 160km north of Australia, Papua New Guinea (PNG) is part of a great arc of mountains stretching from Asia, through Indonesia and into the South Pacific.

Accordingly, is New Guinea part of Australia or Asia?

Culturally it has very little connection to Australia or Asia, and is usually classed with Oceania. Papua New Guinea is the Eastern Part of the island. The eastern half makes up most of the country of Papua New Guinea, which is considered part of Oceania (not a continent, but the pacific islands as a whole).
