Oceania is most of the islands in the pacific, including the big island Australia and the small Island of New Zealand.
Some of the Islands were colonies of fisherman, farmers and sailors.
They didn't have modern technology, they just used stone, wood and bones, they had a arsenal of weapons consisting of boomerangs and spears.
They also had houses made of wood.
The aborigines had a diet consisting of kangaroo, grubs, moths, turtle egg and fruit bats, so basically anything they could there hands on.
Even after the 1750, the area of Oceania did not developed quite slowly.
Australia and New Zealand were both colonized by Britain during the 1800, which led increased interest in Australia.
Not long after France and Netherlands joined in the colonization of New Zealand and Australia.
