You gotta take it to regencey for an inspection, drop in there and they'll tell you whats involved.
Basically it is to make sure that the car complies with Oz design rules, things like side intrusion bars where often not required elsewhere.

Fortunately there is not that much to do to HK cars from early 80's on.

Generally convert the air cond to r134a (generally already done to get it into the country) and install child safety seat anchor points on the rear parcel shelf.

Hendrik is correct, need to comply with ADR of that time, but HK was not far off.
