It looks like the Australian version of South Park: The Stick of Truth won't be the only one to get some cuts, as BT.com broke the news that the EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) console versions of the game will also be censored. AllGamesBeta has provided a scan of the review guide document containing the news, from which I'm going to quote the relevant snippet:
EMEA Censored Content Details
7 scenes of about 20 seconds each are censored in the EMEA console versions of South Park: The Stick of Truth. The decision to cut this content from the game was made by Ubisoft EMEA.
These scenes include:
'¢ A mini-game in which the doctor is performing an abortion on the player
'¢ A mini-game in whichthe player is performing an abortion on the character Randy
'¢ Five anal probing scenes involving someone actively being probed. The scenes play out as normal before and after the active probing sequences
Each censored scene is replaced by an image background and a description text selected by Matt & Trey.
The PC version has apparently remained uncut, and a Ubisoft rep told VG47 that the decision was purely a marketing one.
