Zealandia, also known as the New Zealand continent, is a nearly submerged continent that sank after breaking away from Australia 60-85 million years ago and from Antarctica between 130 and 85 million years ago. Most of it (93%) is now submerged under the Pacific Ocean.
The Kerguelen Plateau (IPA: /kɚˈɡeɪlən, ˈkɝɡələn/) is an underwater volcanic large igneous province (LIP) in the Indian Ocean. It lies about 3,000 km to the southwest of Australia and is nearly three times the size of Japan. The plateau extends for more than 2,200 km in a northwest-southeast direction and lies in deep water.
I was rooting for the Minoans too, but I am starting to doubt that... I was thinking that it might have been between Africa and Australia somewhere....Will we ever know?

Heh, will the real Atlantis please stand up?
Wel, these places sank well before humans started to create civilizations, and there are actually several cultures that could have inspired the Atlantis story, my personal favorite would the Minoans.
