Setting up a company or sole tradership in Australia while living abroad

I live in Indonesia where it is very difficult as a foreigner to establish a business. I want to formalise my online hobby into a business. I am an Australian so I am looking at establishing either an Australian company or sole tradership. I have an address I can use in Australia and my mother would be a director if I go the company route. Is there an advantage to set up one over the other. Sole trader seems less complicated but could there be implications as someone running the online business and living in Indonesia. I still lodge an Australian tax return every year.
