Being "settled in Australia" is not just a matter of time, just because someone has been in Australia for 2 years, they could leave at any time and they may not be renting/own a house and may not have a job.

I would not apply for the 820 straight away. I would find employment, start renting a house, ect. To be 100% you could wait until your partner's tourist visa is near its end, there is no harm in that since a Briding visa is granted straight away after applying. In your case, I would include a cover letter with the application stating your ties to Australia and your intentions to settle. I think with substantial ties + time, you will be successful.

Just to reiterate:
- settle yourself with a house and a job
- try to apply near the end of the tourist visa
- include a cover letter

I know there has been other people on the forum who went through the same situation and it was fine.
Since my last post a lot of things have changed and I ask you for your opinion once again. I really want to be well informed in order to have a solid application.
