    Technically the ancestors of the polynesians.  According to the journal, Antiquity, the Jimnium site in Northwest Ausralia, a sandstone rock shelter, holds stone artifacts made by man more than 100,000 years ago.  The only possibility for humans to have reached the continent at the time would have to been a departure from the Eastern Islands of Indonesia, which were not linked through landbridges and would have required navigation beyond sight of land.  It is more commonly accepted by archaeologists that man was in Australia by 60,000 B.C.
