Yes. That's what made aircraft carriers so dangerous, they could strike anywhere!
They might have; they did bomb Darwin, and they were headed that way; but they were stopped at the Battle of the Coral Sea.Answer The Japanese were stopped on land in New Guinea and no longer had the resources nor the ability to invade Australia afterwards.

No, the Japanese never landed on or invaded Bathurst Island. Bathurst was, however, the first place to be attacked by the Japanese in an airbourne assault before the bombing of Darwin. Father John McGrath, head of the missionary on Bathurst island, sent radio signals to Darwin warning of the oncoming onslaught of Japanese fighter planes from his signal station next to the church as they flew overhead. The Japanese machine gunned the church and signal station from the air and dropped a bomb on an aircraft in Bathurst Island airfield. They then continued on to Darwin, bombing the city and harbour.
The Japanese were moving in that direction.
The Japanese bombed a number of cities and towns in Australia during World War II - many more than most people realise. North Australian towns airports and harbours were repeatedly bombed, with Darwin bearing the brunt of the attacks. Darwin was first bombed on 19 February 1942. Japanese air attacks continued until November 1943. Darwin was bombed a total of 64 times. Other victims of Japanese air raids were Townsville, Mossman, Katherine, Wyndham, Derby, Broome and Port Hedland.
