European influence in Oceania

European influence in Oceania

Australia and New Zealand are both former British colonies. At one time it was envisaged that the two colonies would become a single country. Papua New Guinea was, at one time, a United Nations trusteeship, administered by Australia. Various islands have been annexed by Britain, Portugal, Germany, France, Australia and the United States. This has had an influence on the aspects of culture. Many areas speak both an indigenous language, and the language of the colonial power, often mixing in interesting blends. There has also been an influence on the food and architecture.
