The 2004 OFC Nations Cup doubled as the qualification tournament to the 2006 FIFA World Cup, except the two-legged final (A separate playoff between Australia and Solomon Islands was held in September 2005, for World Cup Qualifying purposes).
The competition was divided in two Group stages (the first is the Qualifying Stage), with Australia and New Zealand seeded into the second stage (Final Stage). The Oceania champion (Australia) qualified for the 2005 Confederations Cup.
The 10 teams in the first round were divided into two groups of five teams each. Within each group, every team played every other team once. The top two teams from each group then progressed to the second group stage, where they were joined by the two seeded teams.
The four surviving members (first and second place teams from each group in stage one) of the first stage joined the two seeded teams (Australia and New Zealand) and took part in a tournament where each team played every other once in a tournament held in Adelaide, Australia.
As this doubled as the 2004 Oceania Nations Cup, the top two teams from the second group stage progressed to a two-legged final to determine the winner of the OFC Nations Cup. These two games on home-and-away basis was separate from World Cup qualifying.
The top two teams from this stage also progressed to the final stage of the 2006 Oceania World Cup qualifying tournament.
Australia and the Solomon Islands progressed to the final stage.

Australia defeated Solomon Islands again, winning 9–1 on aggregate, and advanced to a play-off against the CONMEBOL (South American) nation Uruguay.
