Why would u not buy a return ticket? If immigration pulls u then to them u arent a genuine tourist. Why risk it? U know u will be going home eventually so why not just choose a date and book it?
I agree with Ozzy. I wouldn't want to risk having Australian Immigration asking why a genuine tourist doesn't have a return visa.

My partner went back and forth 6 or 7 times with me as sponsor never questioned or stop in fact the last time she came into Oz only had 3 days left on her visa
I do understand there is some risk but it seems to me it is being a bit over stated

I was always prepared for the question if we were asked
Not sure what date she will leave but it will be before her visa expires
Cheers

Noone knows if you will get questioned or not that is the million dollar question. If you do you are going to have a hell of a time convincing them you are a genuine tourist with no return ticket.

Just be prepared that if they do question you that they have the right to cancel your visa is they do not believe you are a genuine tourist.

U can still choose a date? If u dont have a return ticket they will have reason to believe that u wont leave. This is how people overstay and end up getting banned for 3 yrs

Also, may I ask if I will apply again for a tourist visa after it expires is there a chance that I may be given a gain a one year tourist visa? Do they approve it only once?
