There are many prepaid sim cards in Hong Kong, you can buy them at Circle-K or 7-eleven convenience stores (including the one in the airport). Different cards offers different services and charges and prices, have a look at:

However, you should be aware that when texting, whatever prepaid SIM card you choose may not actually deliver the SMS to its detination, plus overseas SMS isn't really a bargain on local prepaid SIMs. If the local HK network has a roaming agreement with the destination network in Australia, the chance of successful SMS delivery is greatly enhanced.
