Why did Australia change its foreign policy as a result of World War 2?

Australia changed it's foreign policy as a result of World War two. The reason being that Australia's ties with their mother country, Britain did not give them any advantage during the war. Australia had hoped that Britain would be able to defend them in the case of an invasion, but as it happened in World War two, Britain was busy fighting off the Germans in the 'European War'. When Pearl Harbour was attacked, USA came into the war and joined with Australia in fighting off the 'Japs'. So as a result of World War Two, Australia came to depend on USA, rather than their 'mother country', Britain.

Australia joined World War 2 when Britain and Germany went to war. As an associate of Britain, Australia's protection was linked to the welfare of Britain - should it fall, then Australia would have been left open to invasion from Japan.The independent countries in the British Commonwealth - Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa - declared war very shortly after Britain in 1939.They were allied with Great Britain( also know as the Commonwealth) and were forced to join the war when it broke out. Japan also attacked Australia for it's rare materials( iron, coal, etc.) which Japan had few of.Answer Also I They joined world war 2 because Britain did, Australia was a part of Britain so if they were at war, so was Australia.
