Odd that the Koories have been in Aust for about 40,000 years and mankind in the Americas for 20,000. What accounts for the difference?

I'd say that accessibility was probably the issue. Was Australia covered in glaciers from coast to coast in the period of time when it was first colonized by humans? I think not. A group of people can't colonize a land that is inaccessible.

Were there not parts of Alaska that were habitable - Beringeria?

Seems the archaeology is a bit erratic, no Lake Mungo

Sure. Enter the Beringian Standstill:

For the record, it's spelled Beringia.....
