In what ways would Australia help Taiwan in the event of a war with China?

Australia has a military but its nothing to write home about compared to China. It's more about politicking as a show of force that Taiwan is willing to defend itself.
It would help by supplying more soldiers and/or weapons. Taiwan isn't exactly the biggest force and doesn't exactly have a lot of people, just in general compared to China. The Taiwanese army is estimated to be around 130,000 soldiers, so getting Australian forces involve would significantly multiply those number against potential conflict.
The big question though is would Australia help in this situation. The Australian economy is strongly tied to China, but also the global economy is strongly tied to Taiwan and their semiconductor industry, so it really is a toss up.
Also australia and China are having a mini stand off, for years there’s Been some tension and its all coming together with the lobsters and submarines
