If your plan is to apply for your second WHV and you have left it too late, then what they seem to be saying is that you do need to take a trip out to now apply for it, WHVs to be applied for from outside of Australia unless doing the second as a continuation of the first and in that case a second can be applied for from within Australia.

So yep, no option for you but to leave and apply.
Your eligibility is another issue but if you have the employment record for specified regional work during your first WHV and you are otherwise eligible re age, that should not be a problem.
I'm surprised that they issued a BVA unless you had been issued that whilst applying for the 457 whilst still on your WHV but that's another story and all you can do is abide by the regs or get yourself in the poo and maybe get more than a black mark against your name.
