Appeal is not a option for you.
You can re-apply at any time, as long as you address the original refusal reason, that is, failing to show sufficient funds available. I quote "You have not provided sufficient documentation to demonstrate that you have, or have access to, adequate available funds to support yourself and your family during the proposed stay in Australia". If you show proof I see no reason why you will not get a grant.
Is your agent MARA registered? from what you say, your agent has not given you good advice.
Remember to formally sponsor a family member under a VV, the sponsor must be a PR or Citizen. For a normal VV, each applicant must show they EACH have the funds to visit.
Are you a PR or are both of you applying for VV?

Thank you so much for your reply, I really appreciate it ^^
I'm not sure about my agent is MARA registered or not but I do suspect that because she didn't explain much to me. She just told me to prepare to documents, ask me few questions and that's it. Then we are told by her to fly to Kuala Lumpur for the biometrics process. I'm so frustrated because it seems like I'm the one to do the follow up and research more. I'm so upset when we got the refusal results.
I'm not PR, both of us applying for VV as well but for Malaysians we can apply the ETA Visa, except for my mom which is an Indonesian. She married to my father (Malaysian) and since then staying in Malaysia for more than 30 years. I'm taking my parents to Australia for a short family trip (their first time). I've been to Australia few times.
As for my mom case, like what you mention "For a normal VV, each applicant must show they EACH have the funds to visit."
My mom doesn't have her own bank account or income as she is a housewife. Therefore the agent apply me as the daughter to sponsor her.
Is this the reason we got rejected because she don't have her own finance support? We are unsure if the agent apply this correctly or not too.
Does this means I need to provide a stronger bank statement as a proof or my mom need to have her own bank account when I re-apply?
Thank you so much again.

letters of support can be provided but it's up to the individual case officer if they accept it.
basically your mum needs to be able to access the funds herself in her name.
it's to act as a precaution if something happens they can support themselves ect.

Yes I am feeling that I waste the money too, it is like buy me an expensive lesson, and thank you for telling me now that I realized that my mom need to have her own funds/ stable bank statement during her visit. I think the letter of support is not convincing enough. So I guess I just have to give up on this because even if my mom create a new bank account, you need a certain amount inside to proof or else they will said insufficient funds >.<
I should have do more research before I bought those tickets, Lesson learnt.

Its simple, just get your mum to open a bank account, and you deposit the required funds into the account. Then get a Statement and attach that to her VV application. Once she is here she can do whatever she wants with the monyer, i.e send it all back to you.
Aussie_83 and I state the same thing almost daily, GET A MARA REGISTERED AGENT.
All MARA agnets have to regsitered, and all Registration can be checked here https://www.mara.gov...gration-agents/
If they dont come up on the MARA search they are fake, no exceptions.

Hello Morning AussieDude,
We just open a bank account for my mom last week. But it's too soon I'm not sure will they be suspicious on the large amount or not once I deposited. Or will they check back her first application?
Yes I'm checking on the website, I found two agents in my town. I will try to contact them first and let them know my mom's case.
Thank you so much!
P/S: Do the MARA agents handled VV application as well? I thought they only help in migration clients.
