You won't get a whois result for sub-domain, only domain names are
registered.  You'll have to drop off the leftmost sections one by one,
on complex ones like that one, before you find the registered domain.
In this case, it's abs.gov.au.

That sort of thing's a bit more obvious with names like www.example.com
or www.something.or.other.example.com.  The domain is "example.com",
that's the data that's registered and findable through whois.  Any
sub-domains are just DNS records, they're at the whim of the domain
owner (subject to technical requirements of domain name construction, of
course).
