Require confirmation of my plan to get partner visa

after reading through everything I could somehow gather (either too little or too much information depending on the topic), I now have a bit of a plan and would like to run it by you to see whether there is a major flaw.

My girlfriend (Aus citizen) and I have been in a serious relationship for 3 years, however as we both have been studying for this time, she had to still live with parents as financial and cultural difficulties hindered us from getting a place together a lot earlier. I still believe we have enough evidence to prove at least the 12months, if not even the 3 years. We have been on holidays together, she had been staying at my place for probably 3 to 4 nights a week etc, Australian and international friends can vouch for all that.

Is there any special procedure trying for the 3 year straight to PR visa?

My student visa will run out by March 2013 and I would like to being able to apply for graduate positions for 2013, so I need to make sure I have a visa with no working restrictions (preferably PR of course, but the 820 one should work). Here I have to say that I study Bachelor of Commerce (major International Business, unfortunately as I didnt know accounting and IT can get you in through work visa) and Bachelor of Social Science (for skilled work irrelevant). If anyone knows how I maybe could use this degree to get in without going through the partner visa thing, Im open for ideas.

My plan is now to collect as much stuff as possible according to the immigration booklet, get medicals and police clearance etc.

My main question is about from where to apply: I have a trip planned and booked to Thailand on the 20th of April for a week, unrelated to the visa so far. Might it be a good idea to apply from there?Medicals, police clearance and all collection of the application would of course still happen in Perth. Is it permitted to openly just carry the application across the border? I would save the 1000$ which would help and I know that for the visa to be granted I have to leave Australia then again for a week or so. Are there any other implications? Any experience on the procedure of flying out of Australia just to apply causing the application to take longer or cause a higher fail rate? If I do lodge onshore, it would be Perth which Ive heard to be 2 months behind the eastern states.

Im sure more questions will arise while going through the collection process, and while I vow to try to solve them using the search option, I might have to post more here. I apologize in advance if things I ask have been discussed many times before and I am simply just blind.
