Greenland and Australia: Continents or Not?
by Matt Rosenberg ThoughtCo
Why is Australia a continent and Greenland is not? The definition of a continent varies, so the number of continents ranges between five and seven continents. Generally, a continent is one of the major land masses on earth. However, in every accepted definition of continents, Australia is always included as a continent (or is part of an “Oceania” continent) and Greenland is never included.
