Cancelling student visa to apply for tourist one starting on student visa expiry day

Hi all,

I am currently on a student-visa and I would like to be in Australia after it expires. The issue is: I will leave Australia to travel and booked a flight back arriving on the expiry day, so I could still get in Australia with my student visa. However, I would need a new visa for the following week (travel only as well).
I would like to know if I could get a tourist visa by cancelling my student visa once I finish my studies and leave Australia and apply for a tourist one starting on the expiry day of my previous student visa.

I know there's the Visitor visa possibility but that one has a fee, so I would like to know my chances with the option I described. Thanks!
