Where do i start?

Hi,i 'm wondering if anyone can give me an easy answer(the oz immigration site may as well have been written in latin for the sense it makes).So....
I am an Australian citizen/passport holder,i was born there,but i live in the UK.
My children were born in the UK but have duel nationality and passports.
My wife is a pom,(this is the hard bit)If she applies to emigrate to Oz from the UK,which visa does she need,or if she applys for it in Oz,which one will she need?
If she applys in Oz,what visa can she get to get her there in the first place that will allow her to stay until she applys for residence?
Thanks in advance(if it makes sense)

Don't know about the Latin Tim but there is a fair bit of info there and admittedly some can be confusing.
But an offshore partner visa is the one for your wife.
Partner Visa: Offshore Temporary and Permanent (Subclasses 309 and 100)
Being married and with children, it'll be pretty straightforward, there being a Checklist in the Applying for this Visa section and use that and there should be no dramas.
They do apparently get granted quite quickly in the UK and the m&c will expedite that.
It'll still cost about A$2000 for application fee, medical and police check but you could find she'll be granted PR straight away [the m&c again].

There is also an onshore version and essentially if you decided to return for just a visit/holiday and then decided to stay, she could travel on an eVisa and then do the onshore application here but it costs about $800 more and will likely take quite a bit longer [ just workload/staffing etc.] and no work opportunity for her until she has it.

It is considered a little naughty though to arrive on one visa with an entirely different ultimate intent so you wouldn't want to have staying enter your mind until the wife had a chance to have that holiday and children to have the same mind set.
