Qantas Business Lounge Sydney.
If you are a top tier Oneworld frequent flyer i.e FFPL Qantas you can use the FIrst Lounge Sydney.

Does the onward First Class booking give access to the First Lounge in SYD regardless of status?

I think you may actually qualify to use the Qantas First Lounge in Sydney on the basis of the following, in particular bullet point no. 2 as extracted from the Oneworld website:
Thanks TRB. Was that from the Oneworld webpage?
It was indeed!

Unfortunately I don't think this subsection applies - the OP by that definition is taking two long-haul flights.
I believe that is designed to cover someone flying say LAX-SYD (in F) connecting to SYD-AKL (in J)
That said, its worth a try
I was thinking of that. Is short or long based on relative distance or is it defined as a specific benchmark i.e. anything over X hours?

I asked a similar question on AFF a while back; I am flying SYD to Guangzhou via HK on Qantas. First leg is Qantas J and second leg is DragonAir in Y. I wanted to know if I would receive access to Qantas lounge in HK, and based on the above-mentioned oneworld rules, I will have access.
Your scenario is clear cut. You will gain access to any OW operated Business Class lounge in HKG prior to the Dragonair flight. I'd opt for the CX lounges but that's my preference.

Sadly I think Moa is correct. But worth a try.

You can use the Qantas International Business lounge in Sydney and in Hong Kong whatever the CXlounge is, and there is also a Qantas one so maybe try that. You can go to the First Class lounges of Qantas and CX in Sydney and Hong Kong, respectively, if you hold a FF card for CX or any other Oneworld airline you qualify for FCLs even if you are in Economy class.
