If you have a look @ Skilled – Sponsored (Migrant) Visa (Subclass 176) you'll see that to be eligible for the 176 you should have been applying within six months of finishing your studies.

You might want to see if you can have the sponsorship made for an 886 and apply.
Skilled – Sponsored (Residence) visa (subclass 886)
