I cannot find a source, but by international agreement, probably IMO, different countries are responsible for search and rescue in different parts of the world's oceans.
As Australia claims all the way to the South pole over much of the quadrent due South of Australia, if a plane went down in the Australain region, I am sure Australia would coordinate the rescue even if it asked for help from others.
