www.Darwindefenders.org offers a snapshot of the activity in 40 odd Japanese raids.

I think the total number of raids against Northern Australia was around the 70 mark.

Initial defence was courtesy of USAAF P-40’s and, eventually, RAAF/RAF Spitfires; with some Boomerangs joining the mix.

Offensive operations were conducted by B24, B25, Beaufighter, Mosquito and Catalina.
