My sister and mother are hoping to visit me in Australia on a Tourist 600 visa from Pakistan. They will submit the application together and mention each other's details in the form where they ask who you're traveling with.

My question is, once they both have been granted their visas, what happens if only one of them travels to Australia and the other one can't for some reason. Would the immigration officer at the airport look at that as potentially dodgy? If they do, can they cancel the visa on the spot?

Would it reflect badly on future visa applications of the person who didn't utilise their first visa?

Look forward to getting some advice, thanks.

Can only one person travel - yes
Will it look dodgy - probably not unless you say something like "both applied because we thought there would be more chance of a grant"... if there's a logical reason then they would be happy with it.
Can a visa be cancelled on the spot - potentially, the only person guaranteed entry to Australia at a port is someone with an Australian passport, even permanent residency holders can be refused entry.

If you don't use the first one and you apply for a second you may be asked why. Things change, immigration understands this, besides they have your money by that point.
