Australian AFP checks.

I am an Australian citizen and I have been living in UK for 11 years. I am just about to apply for a partner visa, but i am unsure if i am required to get police checks from Australia as well as the Uk. Can anyone help?

Only the applicant has to get the police checks, unless there are children involved. If there are children involved (under 18) then the sponsor and the applicant must get a police check but this only applied to countries in which you've lived for more than 12 months in the last 10 years.
