The discovery indicates their arrival on the continent was up to 18,000 years earlier than previously thought.

It was made after sophisticated artefacts were excavated from a rock shelter in the Northern Territory.

Researchers unearthed what they say are the world's oldest stone axes and ochre crayons, thought to be used for art.

Also notable that stone axes and crayons are older than previously thought.

Granted that some on the subreddit where I found this are saying that this is not news because Aboriginal oral tradition has already provided evidence of this and older incidents, but I think physical evidence is still a big thing.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

Yeah, this is pretty big. Sure the Aboriginal traditions state something but that doesn't automatically make it fact just like how something stated in Christian or other people's oral and written traditions aren't always facts. But with physical evidence to back them up it makes it true. Like how Jesus was an actual historical guythousands of years ago.
