Quick Overview

Australia at War Series of 50 cent coins

Details

The war came to Australia in 1942 when Japanese forces in the Pacific overran British and Commonwealth forces in Malaya and Singapore and invaded New Guinea. Darwin and Northern Australia was repeatedly bombed while Sydney and Newcastle were also attacked. Along the Kokoda Trail and at Milne Bay, Australian forces blunted the Japanese offensive in Papua. From 1943 to 1945 Australians fought in New Guinea and the Solomon Islands, and were fighting in Borneo when the Japanese ultimately surrendered in 1945.
