Megafauna.  Aboriginals came to Australia about 50 thousand years ago.  Anthropologists call Aboriginals gracile.  Megafauna like large wombats, rhino, flightless birds, lizards and meat eating kangaroos lived alongside Aboriginals before becoming extint 20-30 thousand years ago.  A theory holds that Aboriginals killed off megafauna because megafauna and human bones were found together.  Tasmanian Aboriginals had a different origin than mainland Aboriginals.  They could not start fire but fought over access to it.  Aboriginals 40,000 years ago lived alongside Marree Man, a man-like bearded creature that walked upight.
Australian culture is expressed via art galleries, Australian strine, museums and famous Australians.
