An exceptional reason would be if you were seriously ill in hospital or had a family member who was seriously ill.

From your post it seems you don’t actually want to stay more than 12 months in Australia, so you can just apply for a standard 12 month multiple entry visa with maximum 3 months stays.

Okay but is there any need to state exceptional reason as an evidence to proof?

I would like to apply for one year but I don't know if they will grant me that because I don't want to give them a reason to think I want to stay longer and that might course them to deny me the visa.

What country are you from? That can sometimes influence a visa grant.

Are you planning a few specific trips? If so, you could put those estimated dates as a reason for a multiple stay visa.

I'm from Africa, Ghana.
Actually I plan for a long stay to Australia but there should be a limit of stay for me to state on the application so that can also influence them to give me maybe 12 months multiple entry.

I do not like your chances of getting a visa unless you have extensive travel to countries with a similar standing to Australia, and solid reasons to return to your home country.
I have been to one country with my passport which is Liberia but I work in a company and I have my payslip and my bank statement about $8000and also I have all the necessary document to back it up

$8,000 might cover you for a few weeks on holiday, but you are talking about 12 months now.

They would be interested in knowing how you would support yourself during that time.

Even if you got a visa, you may be asked questions again on arrival, and visitor visas are often cancelled at the airport if the immigration staff have doubts about your financial ability.

You have said "I only plan to stay for 2 weeks as tourist visa 600" and "Actually I plan for a long stay to Australia". That is confusing.

Do you have some work in Australia to help pay your long stay?

That is what needs to be explained fully, and to the satisfaction of the officer who will decide on the grant.

If you confuse the issue, you are looking at a rejection.

Some visitor visa applicants are advised to use a MARA agent, to improve their chances of a grant.

Normally you cannot stay more than 12 months in one go, but you may be able to make multiple shorter visits up to 3 or 6 months.

Thanks again, please should I ignore the Exceptional reason to extended stay in Australia? Because I don't know what to say over there.
