Bringing my wife to Oz

Hi Guys,

I am Australian but have lived in many different places over the years, I have been with my partner for 8 years and we are about to get married and are thinking of moving back to Oz.

I am not sure what I would need to do in relation to my wife, will she be allowed entry or will she need to follow a emigration process.

many thanks
