Hong Kong eBay Seller?

I've been browsing eBay and just wondered about one thing. There's hundreds of eBay sellers from HK selling stuff on aussie eBay site. Some of them even have valid Australian bank accounts.
Now, I am sure that they would pay the Ebay fees on Aussie site, but do they pay anything else except for the eBay Fees? As you know, the Australian law states that a business must pay a tax when its turnover is over $50,000 per year and so it needs to be registered for GST and will need an ABN. So, does this law apply to HK sellers?
For example, this guys has sold over 40,000 goods so far on aussie eBay site. Surely, his/her turnover must be over $50,000, so does it mean he/she must have an ABN?
What about this case?
This guy claims he/she's an Australian power seller, yet all his/her items are located in HK or shipped from HK. So, basically, he/she is registered to an Australian eBay site but is a Hong Kong based business. What's different to the first case? Does this guy pay any Australian tax? Does he need to have an ABN just becasue he registered on Australian eBay site rather than Hong Kong eay site?
