Filipina girlfriend in HK. Help and advice appreciated

Hi - Ok... from the subject line, you get the idea right? We just need to know which visa we should apply for as to start the process of my girlfriend coming to live in Australia with me.
We have met twice now since feb this year and I’ll be going back to HK in a few weeks, and then we’re off to the Phillipines to see her family.
There seems to be ( from what I hear) an issue as she is in HK and does not live in the Phillipines as to how successful a PMV or Partner Visa would be. There are no plans for her to go and live back there, as that would be a mistake from her financial point of view mainly.
Can anybody shed some light my way please, we just do not know what to do. (
Thanks..... (just in case anybody comes up with a few pointers!)

There are only three options :

Partner visa offshore
Prospective marriage visa offshore
Partner visa onshore

There are no other options other than skilled or employer sponsored visas.

What matters is that you have good relationship evidence, not where your partner is residing.

Tourist visas can be problematic for people who live outside their country of citizenship.

There are no magic or cheap solutions, so the best thing to do is work out a realistic strategy and go from there.
