Here is the paper with the science supporting the Zealandia continent.
https://www.geosociety.org/gsatoday/archive/27/3/article/GSATG321A.1.htm

"Conclusions

Zealandia illustrates that the large and the obvious in natural science can be overlooked. Based on various lines of geological and geophysical evidence, particularly those accumulated in the last two decades, we argue that Zealandia is not a collection of partly submerged continental fragments but is a coherent 4.9 Mkm2 continent (Fig. 1). Currently used conventions and definitions of continental crust, continents, and microcontinents require no modification to accommodate Zealandia."
