I think you're talking about something different from the "true", de facto, Australian "Coast Guard", which is "Maritime Border Command": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maritime_Border_Command_(Australia)

Maybe you're referringĀ  to community S&R organizations like "Marine Rescue NSW", "Australian Volunteer Coast Guard" or "Royal Volunteer Coastal Patrol".

The typical roles of the Coast Guard (/or whatever is called in different countries/) is maritime borders control and maritime law enforcement.
