This is an incomplete list of Oceanian supercentenarians (people from Oceania who have attained the age of at least 110 years). The Gerontology Research Group (GRG), an organization that tracks supercentenarians and verifies their age claims, has verified that 29 verified supercentenarians have lived in Oceania.[1] The oldest Oceanian ever was Australian woman Christina Cock, who lived to the age of 114 years, 148 days. The oldest verified Oceanian man was Australian Jack Lockett, who lived to the age of 111 years, 123 days. There are currently four living super-centenarians from Oceania, all reside in Australia, of which three were born in the United Kingdom and one in Victoria, Australia. The oldest of whom is Mary Whitehurst.
