Láthair na hAigéine.

Réigiún tíreolaíoch is ea an Aigéine, a chlúdaíonn oileáin agus tíortha éagsúla atá suite san Aigéan Ciúin. Níl aon sainmhíníú amháin le fáil, ach deirtear gurb iad na tíortha atá lonnaithe sa réigiún seo ná an Astráil, an Nua-Shéalainn, an Nua-Ghuine Phapua, an Tíomór Thoir agus na háiteanna san Indinéis a luíonn ar thaobh oirthearach na Líne Wallace.

Tíortha agus réigiúinCuir in Eagar

B'é an taiscéalaí Francach Jules Dumont d'Urville a chum an téarma seo, sa bhliain 1831. Tá an réigiún roinnte i gceithre réigiún éagsúla - an Mhicrinéis, an Mheilinéis, an Pholainéis agus an Astraláise.
