If you have a look at 885 eligibity, you'll see that there is a requirement for two years study in Australia and without that it would be a 175 for you.

Thanks Wanderer, I think 175 is for me. I can go for it while in Australia, correct ? any special condition or something I should be aware of ? Thanks again.

With applying for a 175 while in Australia, approaching time for it to be granted you'll get advised by Immi that you need to advise them of a trip you intend to take overseas to allow the visa to be granted.
So you schedule a short break or whatever to wherever and advise them of your departure date and will not hurt to send a goodbye email from an airport terminal on outbound side of Immigration and away you go to turn around and come back in on your new visa.

Thaks Wanderer. what I understand is I need to go out of Australia for few days, how many and when ? also do I need to some specific country or I can visit New Zealand and come back ?

NZ is OK and nominally they say to allow 5 days but you may find as soon as you land or the next business day the visa has already been granted.
You could probably ask the NZ immigration guy on arrival or go up to an airline check in desk and ask them to see if the visa shows up on the system when they scan your passport.
