I think it depends on where you live (some countries have different official names for things). Personally, I prefer to call Australia and all the Pacific islands Oceania, maybe that's just me.

No, it doesn't. The region is referred to as Oceania, but the Continent is Australia. The islands are not continents. 

I don't want to get into a debate about this. In my opinion, islands are included in continents (Like Greenland is, geographically, part of North America, in my opinion). I am not going to say you're wrong, I'm just saying my definition of a continent is different than yours.

Edit: if you define a continent strictly as a single landmass, I would agree with you, but that is not my definition.

Fair enough.

I think he called this "Australasia" to include both Austalia and Asia so probably should be typed like this Australia/Asia.

No, Australasia is one way of saying, Australia (the continent), or Oceania. As you can see above, Asia has it's own category.

I think Australesia sounds better since Micronesia is part of it, and is Indonesia part of it too?

No, Indonesia is considered part of Asia.
