STUDENT VISA DENIED.. I need your help for options

Enrolled na po ako sa QTHC Adelaide for October intake. But Visa 500 was denied. Reasons are no further study since 2007. My SOP stated that I will go back to my country to open my own business. No reason for a Diploma from Australia. And never traveled to Australia.

Options are given by my agency:
Apply for a tourist visa then re-apply Visa 500 onshore.

Can you give me suggestions and opinions? I would very much appreciate it. Salamat!

    The profession of a Cook is listed in the MLTSSL of Australia. Enrolling for a VET course in cookery will line you up well for a possible long term stay in australia after you've completed 2 years of study there. Time is of the essence however considering your present age. you shouldn't delay if you intend to apply for a study visa.
