well it has to do with timing of colonization. America was colonized before Australia and even then, Australia was used as a prison colony for some time. It wasn't until about 1900 that it became a nation in its own right. by that time, America was pretty well settled by europeans. most of my ancestors came over between 1800-1880.
as for aboriginal Australians, they didn't want to leave australia for the most part and they were discriminated against pretty hard and couldn't leave if they want to later on.

Explorers were from Europe.
