TransPacific, said of a country on the opposite side of the Pacific Ocean. Derived from across the pond, the difference being that a lake is bigger than a pond, much as the Pacific is bigger than the Atlantic Ocean.
Oh, you need directions to Australia? It's just across the lake, you can't miss it.
