Darwin was bombed by the Japanese a total of sixty times between 19 February 1942 and 12 November 1943.

The Western Australian towns of Broome and Wyndham were bombed on 3 March 1942. Over 100 people were believed to have been killed in the attack, but because Broome port was crowded with Dutch refugees fleeing the Japanese invasion of the Netherlands East Indies, exact figures are unknown. Japanese midget submarines entered Sydney Harbour on 31 May 1942. Each launched a midget submarine, hoping to sink an American heavy cruiser, the USS Chicago, which was anchored in the harbour. Nine days later, the submarine believed to be the mother ship fired at the Sydney Harbour Bridge for 4 minutes. Every shot landed well short of its target.

Why were Japanese American interned during world war 2?

Japanese-American internment was the forced relocation and internment by the United States government in 1942 of approximately 110,000 Japanese Americans and Japanese residing along the Pacific coast of the United States to camps called "War Relocation Camps" (a polite way of saying Concentration Camps) in the wake of Imperial Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor.Following the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941, the United States was gripped by war hysteria. This was especially strong along the Pacific coast of the U.S., where residents feared more Japanese attacks on their cities, homes, and businesses. Leaders in California, Oregon, and Washington, demanded that the residents of Japanese ancestry be removed from their homes along the coast and relocated in isolated inland areas.While the threat from Japanese spies and saboteurs was real, it was primarily the distrust many Americans felt of the mysterious Japanese culture. Combined with virulent Propaganda against the Japanese enemy, it created a dangerously hostile situation. Some top military leaders (later known for undisguised racial bias) were allowed to contravene the rights of loyal Americans. Years later, some were compensated for their hardships, albeit both belatedly and inadequately.Pearl Harbour led to the internment of the Japanese Americans because it scared the American citizens into being sucpisious of any Japanese person, and the government's solution was to place the Japanese Americans in internment camp so no uprisings would occur.

When did Germany attack Australia?

Australia was attacked many, many times by the Japanese in the first years of World War II, but it was never directly invaded by Germany. Germany was seen as a threat in both world wars, but it was a distant threat, being confined to Europe. Both the Japanese and Germans periodically sent naval forces to raid and attack Australian shipping that was aiding the British Commonwealth war effort. On occasion, the Japanese also delegated bombings on Northern Australia between 1942 and 1943. German U-boats were also dispatched to disrupt Australian harbors. The only time there was a foreign military presence in Australia during World War II was in 1944 when a small Japanese reconnaissance party landed in Kimberley.
