Visa to Australia.

I have lived in the Philippines for approx four years and I am going back to Australia in September for a six week holiday, but my lady friend who is a Filipino wants to go with me.
Could somebody please help me out here with information on how I can obtain an Australian visa for her to accompany me?
She has a passport, owns no property, is not employed right now, but has money in the bank.
We live together and have no intentions of getting married, although we are engaged.
I am financially able to support her ( I am an Australian citizen) but most of my contacts in Australia have either died, or I have lost contact with, so I will be living in holiday rentals.
My question is... what is the best way to apply for a visa for her, and what type of visa does she apply for, and is it best to do it online or through an agent?
I have heard so many stories of what to do but I am so confused, and would like somebody who could give me positive information and not hearsay.
We are renting here in the Philippines and have a yearly rental contract, and I have no intentions of going back to Australia to live after our holiday.
I am desperate to sort this out so as I can start planning ahead.
Would be very appreciative to anybody who can help me here.

Am quiet sure, he did mention he was not married to her, but she is a fiancee...so i don't know how your suggestion will work.

I suggest you find a trusted agency equipped in the procedure on getting a tourist visa for your fiancee.  With your citizenship and financial background..it won't be hard to get her a tourist visa. But i hope someone with good knowledge on that will come throw more light on the subject matter.

Thank you flex 14, yes you read my message correctly, I am not married and thank you for your suggestion.

Number one, you do not go to the embassy, you must use their service agency. Easy to do it all yourself from their online site. They're interested in your history together and her showing intent to leave.

Hi,

Hi! Is this really possible?  I mean no as long as tou showed your marriage certificate and fill up the form they will give you a tourist visa? No need for proof that you will vome back here in the Philippines like title of a property? 

Thank you...

For a tourist visa to Australia you can apply on line:

http://philippines.embassy.gov.au/mnla/ … isas2.html

https://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Visa-1/6 … plications

To start an online application you will need to login to your ImmiAccount. If you do not have an ImmiAccount you will be prompted to create one.
You must add as much information as possible before you submit your application. Applications with missing information might take longer to finalise.
