First of all you need to check the existing tourist visa and see if it has a No Further Stay condition and if so next step to have her stay would be to head into an Immi office and see if you get any joy with applying for a waiver - Australian Immigration Fact Sheet 52b. Waiving Visa Condition 8503 - "No Further Stay"
Getting a waiver is apparently difficult but you'll never know without trying and perhaps it'd help if you had marriage plans.

If there is no No Further Stay condition or you have a waiver, your alternatives would then seem to be either attempting to get a visa extension/further visitor visa [ being prepared to foot all the medical bills ] or get married or if you are in Vic., Tassie or ACT have a look at the possibility of getting a relationship registration [ could also be soon NSW ] .

https://online.justice.vic.gov.au/CA256902000FE154/Lookup/BDMApplication_Forms/$file/DomesticRelationship_ApplyToRegister.pdf [ link not working! ] for Vic. and you need to check with the relevant Births, Deaths and Marriages registry.

Doing either of the latter, she could apply for a partner visa and a bridging visa would be granted if the application was still being considered when the tourist visa ended.
There is quite a bit of documentation/evidence required however other than just getting married or having a relationship registered if that is possible.
Have a good read of the relevant sections via http://www.immi.gov.au/migrants/family/visa-options.htm and the Booklet #1 you'll see referred to.
But of course, first things first.
