hey, I can give a timeline of my wife's 309 and one of my friend's 309 application which were processed in China.

If you are currently residing in China, I assume you hold a Chinese Z visa providing your work permit and resident permit of China to the DHA, your application should be processed in China. And based on the province you reside, your application would be allocated to either Australian Consulate in Shanghai, or in Beijing, in Chengdu or in Guanzhou.

Timeline for my wife's 309/100 application:
Date of lodgement: 07/11/2015 (online by myself)
Date of 309 Grant: 22/04/2016
Processing consulate: Shanghai
Current status: 100 stage applied, awaiting decision

My friend's 309/100 application:
Date of lodgement: 29/06/2016 (paper via agent)
Date of 309 Grant: 03/02/2017
Processing consulate: Guangzhou
Current status: 100 stage applied, awaitng decision

Now the official processing time for 309 stage on DHA website is 75% finalised in 21 months and 90% finalised in 26 months. I think this is just indicative. However, I am in a Chinese 309/100 application wechat group, most of the applications (lodged by end of 2017) are still getting granted within 12 months or less.

I am in Shenzhen so most likely will be sent to Guangzhou thats where my last tourist 600 visa was processed and that was done in less than a week so I was kinda hopeful my 309 wouldn't take too long
The fastest processing time for a 309/100 visa from Guangzhou so far I've known is 7 months, information was from the wechat group I was in, just for your reference.
