This means that dromaeosaurids (or putative dromaeosaurids) have now been reported from EVERY continent:

North America - Deinonychus, Saurornitholestes, Bambiraptor, Dromaeosaurus, Atrociraptor, Utahraptor, unnamed/non-diagnostic material.

South America - Buitreraptor, Unenlagia, Neuquenraptor?, Unquillosaurus??, unnamed/non-diagnostic material.

Africa - Rahonavis, unnamed/non-diagnostic material incl. Wadi Milk material (unenlagiine?).

Europe - Pyroraptor, Variraptor?, Nuthetes?, Dromaeosauroides?, unnamed/non-diagnostic material.

Asia - Mahakala, Microraptor (=Cryptovolans?), Graciliraptor, Sinornithosaurus, Shanag, Adasaurus, Velociraptor, Tsaagan, Achillobator, Luanchuanraptor, Hulsanpes?, unnamed/non-diagnostic material.
Australia - unnamed/non-diagnostic material (teeth, ulna). (e.g., http://dml.cmnh.org/1998Sep/msg00454.html)

I wouldn't be so sure about the ulna (it's theropod, but that's about all anyone seems to know for sure), but certainly there are plenty of 'dromaeosaur-like' teeth from Australia.
