You need to have a look at the definition of the 12 months relationship you will find under eligibility for partner applications, either onshore or offshore.
If your partner comes in on a tourist visa it is also likely that it will have a No Further Stay condition applied and therefore no further visa can be applied for.

More likely impossible than complicated.

If it is not possible for you to stay in the Philippines for 12 months to qualify for a partner visa, you might have to look at what visas he can get for Australia that will not have a No Further Stay condition applying.
Any chance that an employer sponsor visa is a possibility for him or a student visa.
If he does get here without a No Further Stay condition on a visa, then you could look at a relationship registration if you are in ACT, Vic. Tassie or NSW [ before too long ] and that waives the 12 months requirement but you'll still ned good evidence of a relationship as specified in Immi info.

Hi Tine,

Proving de facto status is quite difficult for a long distance relationship. Luckily there is more than just the de facto visa that your partner may apply for. There are specific regional sponsorships where if you live within certain areas of Australia, your partner may be able to get a visa. Also, there are studying or training visas that he may be able to apply for.

In addition to that there are agencies that have specific agreements with government to sponsor and recruit specific roles.
