The first English-born person to arrive in South Australia was explorer Matthew Flinders, who did so in 1802. He was the first European to explore the southern coast in detail, investigating possibilities for settlement.

The colony of South Australia was proclaimed and settled in 1836. In 1834, British Parliament passed the South Australian Colonisation Act. Adelaide, capital of South Australia, was founded by Colonel Light in 1836. The first settlers, all of whom were free settlers, arrived in 1836, accompanied by Governor John Hindmarsh. South Australia is the only state in Australia not to have been founded by convicts.

As far as I know America has never arrived in Australia. American troops were stationed in Australia during WW2 because the Japanese bombed Darwin, and American tourists arrive in droves every year, but as a nation the US has never actually "arrived".
