Hungry Jack's isn't a BK clone, it's a licensed user of BK trademarks

Basically when Burger King went to launch in Australia, someone else already had the trademark locally.

There were legal shenaningans, and for a period there were BK branded restaurants, but they never took off to the same extent, and subsequently if you want BK in Australia, you go to HJs.
