I am a freelancer for one client located in Australia, Without prior notice, he ended my contract without telling any reasons. Is that legal here? Did the client need to pay an extra for the damage what he did?
A client may end a contract at any time, for any reason, without notice.

That is fine. No Upwork rules are violated by this.
re: "Is that legal here?"
Yes. This is allowed.
re: "Did the client need to pay an extra for the damage what he did?"
What are you talking about? What "damage"?
Why do you care if a client ends a contract? It's not even your project. You were paid for all the work that you did. Why are you concerned about this?

As Preston mentioned, the nature of freelancing is that either party can end the contract at any time.
The client does not have to pay anything other than the hours you worked up to when the contract ended.
May I suggest that you check any prospective client's history before accepting a contract from them in future? There isn't a snowball in hell's chance I'd have considered to work with a client with such an apalling feedback history.
