Why can't  Americans not tell the difference between Australian and British accents they sound nothing alike ?

    Mostly because Americans are rarely exposed to the accents, so they do not have the ability to compare them.

    I dunno, Americans aren't very good listeners.

    Americans don't tend to hear both accents regularly.  I have, many times, heard someone speaking briefly and assumed British until they did the "oi" sound for an "i".  There are pronunciations that give it away, but Australian English and British English are closer together than American English is.
