Well that is funny. I know it has been a while since I was in school but the ref to Australia being an Island is a common mistake. Australia's land mass is too big and as such is referred to as a continent, or at least it was 20 years ago. While Australia is also referred to as an Island continent this is also incorrect. We are just a continent as both labels can't apply.
