Difference between a resume and CV

Are a resume and a curriculum vitae (CV) the same thing?
In Australia, resume and CV are used interchangeably. CVs are usually longer and list your full work history. Resumes are shorter in length and summarise your experience. In other countries resumes and CV are different. When applying for work overseas check what is meant by a resume or CV in that country.
