Any visa experts out there that can help?

My situation is that I am originally from UK, moved to NZ 8 years ago, then to Australia 5 years ago. Currently on Temp Visa 461, wife is NZ. My skills are on shortage list (IT related), and I have been running a small business for 3 years in Victoria. Just renewed the 461 visa so no rush.

So now to the hard bit, looking for more permanent residency as we now have a baby and house in Aus. I know I can apply for business owner visa once I hit a turnover and employ staff, but not there yet. Would it be better to apply for 190 state or 489 state? The 461 and NZ citizenship won't allow us to get Aus citizenship, so looking for a visa that will.

Thanks in advance.
