There is a proximal humerus of a theropod  from the Maastrichtian Miria 
Formation of Western Australia. Reference:
Long, J. A., 1992, First dinosaur bones from Western Australia. The 
Beagle 9(1), 21-28.
The bone might be that of a coelurosaur according to John Long,  but I'm not 
sure wether the proximal humerus contains any diagnostic characters to assign 
it to any theropod group.
 Incidentaly the Miria has also produced an Azhdarchid pterosaur.
