Approximately 40,000 BC - 36,000 BC: Australians reach the Americas

A tiny number of Australian explorers are managing to reach South American shores, typically with tens of miles or more distance (and years of time) separating different landfalls. Once they realize the land is no mere island, they soon settle to make a life for themselves there.

A heavy dependence by the Australians upon fire continues in the new land, due to often harsh weather as well as new threats discovered from megafauna and animal predators on the new continent.
