there are two possible answers to this question, its answers rely on individual opinions. Some say that the battle at Kokoda saved Australia from future invasion by showing the Japanese we would not back down and would fight for our country. The other answer was that the Japanese were not planning on attacking Australian territory because they were too involved with the Americans. They also believe it didn't save Australia but instead caused the loss of thousands of Australian soldiers.

Yes, it did. If it wasn't for that battle Australia would have been invaded.

It is interesting isn't it. Especially since the Japanese were well armed, superior fighters with excellent training etc. While the diggers were no more than untrained farmboys. So why did the Australians inflict a larger casualty rate? The Kokoda Trail was Australias last line of defense, the British had abandoned us, the Americans were providing very little to no help, and other allies such as NZ were preoccupied in Europe/North Africa. If Kokoda fell then Australia would be wide open for a full fledged invasion. There were already bombers destroying northern towns such as Darwin, Cairns, Broome etc. It was this situation that led to every digger to believe that they were no longer fighting for another country but they were fighting to save Australia.

(Actually, ADMIRAL Nelson - the Captain of HMS Victory at Trafalgar was Thomas Masterman Hardy.) The victory meant that the British Navy was supreme, and that the French Navy would not be strong enough to protect an invasion by sea (which is the only way). From then on Napoleon could go on invading European countries, and eventually Russia where he failed, but not on the seas because his Navy was not strong enough.
