I am going to visit some family abroad.
My dad did reach out to his family and make amends.
From what I am reading, you were the one who decided to reach out to these relatives after the dealth of your father...and that these relatives really had no contact with anyone in your immediate family for 25 years before that time.

While it would be polite for the relatives to ask about your mom once in a while, for her
These relatives are in Australia.
Has your mother met these relatives, and if so, when was the last time that she saw them? When was the last time that she contacted them and asked how they were doing?
First of all, I am an adult, not a teenager.
