Best Answer

counter-clockwise It sounds as if you might be asking: How often are the hands of a clock pointing in opposite directions (at exactly 180 degrees)? If that is the question, the answer is: Over the course of a 24 hour day, it will happen 22 times. The reason it's not 24: It happens, usually, once after every hour. But, after 5, the next occurance is right at 6. Then, the next occurance is after 7. So you don't have 3 separate occurances after 5, after 6, and after 7. If this isn't what you meant, it was fun answering anyway.

Why would a clock go counter clockwise if invented in Australia?

It's generally assumed that the direction clock hands move is derived from the movement of the shadow around a sundial. In the southern hemisphere, that movement is opposite from that of the northern hemisphere. If clockmaking had developed in Australia so that they became dominant in that craft, it is likely that clocks would be running in the opposite direction.
