However, the islands of the Sahul were more closely linked to Australia than Asia; consequently, they have animals that are similar to Australian animals and are part of the Austro-Malayan zoogeographic region.
The British naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace drew attention in the mid-19th century to the great contrasts between the Sunda and Sahul, illustrating his case with the differences between the ecologies of the islands of Bali and Lombok.
As a result, the border between the Sunda and Sahul came to be known as Wallace’s Line.

 Sahul Shelf - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Sahul Shelf is part of the continental shelf of Sahul (the Australia-New Guinea continent) and lies off the northern coast of Australia.
Another part of the Sahul Shelf is known also as the Arafura Shelf and runs all the way from the northern coast of Australia under the Arafura Sea to New Guinea.
The Sahul Shelf is sometimes taken to also include the Rowley Shelf which runs out under the Indian Ocean from the northwest coast of Australia as far south as North West Cape.

 Australia (continent) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Australia (also called Australia-New Guinea, Australinea, Sahul, or Meganesia) is a continent comprising (in order of size) the Australian mainland, New Guinea, Tasmania, and intervening islands, all of which sit on the same continental shelf.
These landmasses are separated by seas overlying the continental shelf — the Arafura Sea and Torres Strait between Australia and New Guinea, and Bass Strait between mainland Australia and Tasmania.
The Australian continent is the smallest and lowest-lying of the Earth's continents, having a total land area of some 8,560,000 square kilometres.

Fishes of Sahul was first published in July 1983 and had, by the end of 2003, achieved 1000 pages of high quality articles and photographs.
International aquarists are also invited and encouraged to record and share their own unique experiences with the fishes of the Sahul region.

 Funagain Games: Sunda to Sahul
Sunda to Sahul is actually a family of games, that can be played solitaire, or by up to four people.

Burial history models for the Flamingo and Sahul synclines indicate initial source-rock maturation at the start of the Paleocene for Upper Flamingo claystones in the Flamingo syncline, and in the Cretaceous for the Sahul syncline (Brooks and others, 1996).
On the margins of the Petrel sub-basin the Plover Formation reaches a thickness of 200 m and in the Sahul syncline a thickness of 1,200 m (Killick and Robinson, 1994).
Subsidence of the Sahul syncline and the Flamingo trough was greatest in Late Jurassic whereas subsidence in the Malita graben was greatest in the Early Cretaceous (Killick and others, 1994).

These features are the surface expression of the complex geology of the area, with a history of rifting at various times from the late Devonian to the Jurassic and more recent modification by the collision between the Australian and Eurasian plates.
The Sahul Shelf is a broad, shallow platform off the northern Australian coast, ranging from 300 to 500 km in width, and is considered to be a recently drowned part of the Australian continent.
They are thought to represent drowned carbonate formations which formed a string of islands seaward of the palaeo-coastline, and which have been unable to keep pace with sea level rise in the past 20,000 years (Lavering, 1993).

 Indonesia's Wildlife (Komodo dragon, birds of paradise, Sumatran tiger, Java tiger, proboscis monkey)
During this period the islands of Java, Sumatra, Kalimantan and Bali on the Sunda Shelf were joined together with one another and with the Asian mainland, but Irian Jaya, Aru and the Australian continent of the Sahul Shelf were separated.
ALFRED RUSSEL WALLACE (1823-1913) wrote in his book, "The Malay Archipelago," that Nusantara was separated into an Oriental ecological area (west side) and an Australian ecological area (east side) by a Wallace Line that runs from South to North, passing the Lombok and Makassar Straits and ending in the south eastern part of the Philippines.
The other two faunal lines are the Weber Line, which passes the sea between Ma-luku and Sulawesi, and the Lydekker Line, which starts at the Sahul Shelf and skirts the west-ern border of Irian Jaya and the Australian continent.

 Total Petroleum Systems of the Bonaparte Gulf Basin Ares, Australia:(Province Geology)
Tectonic activity and subsidence shifted in the Mesozoic to the northwest margin of the Bonaparte Gulf Basin Province resulting from continental breakup along the entire northern and western margins of Australia and the formation of faulted platforms of continental crust and abyssal plains of oceanic crust.
The Mesozoic trend includes the Vulcan graben sub-basin with tilted fault blocks and grabens, confined to the east by the Permo-Triassic Londonderry high and to the west by the Ashmore platform, and the Malita graben sub-basin, bounded to the north by the Sahul platform and to the south by the Darwin shelf (Fig.
The sub-basins are offset and connected by the Sahul and Flamingo synclines or troughs that trend roughly north-south (Fig.

 Background to Pacific Archaeology
These range from near continental-sized islands such as New Guinea and New Zealand, both of which have glaciated mountain ranges, to tiny islets such as Anuta (0.8 sq km), and to atolls which stand a mere 3 m above sea level.
These early hunter-gatherer populations quickly expanded through the Sahul and Near Oceania regions, reaching New Britain, New Ireland, Buka, and probably the main Solomon Islands by 35,000 B.P. Much later, beginning around 3,500 before present, a major diaspora of Austronesian-speaking populations resulted in the rapid spread of humans beyond the Solomon Islands into Remote Oceania.
The initial expansion of Oceanic-speaking populations beyond the Solomon Islands into Remote Oceania as far as Tonga and Samoa (Western Polynesia) is associated with the archaeological horizon known as
