NBC’s official Olympic website describes Australia as located in central Europe:
Located in central Europe, bordered to the north by Germany and the Czech Republic, to the west by Switzerland and Liechtenstein, to the south by Italy and Slovenia, and to the east by Hungary and Slovakia. Is primarily mountainous with the Alps and foothills covering the western and southern provinces.
And people have been pointing it out for at least a day, and NBC is sticking to its story.
Which is awesome.
I really like how detailed they are with the description. Their interns may not know the difference between Australia and Austria, but they sure are thorough.
