Substitute China with the Japan of WWII for an idea of what a hostile China might be capable of.


The difference China probably has the manpower to invade Australia, something Japan never had, but faces the same problem Japan faced, supplying their forces.  I'd have to do a lot more research, but WITHOUT Chinese allies in the region, there is a good chance we would see (in general) a repeat of the submarine war against Japan during WWII.
