not lived together...add as defacto on 457 question

Situation is my boyfriend moved to Melbourne on a 457 in February. Everything happened really fast and he was there before we knew it. We had not lived together in the UK due to work commitments as he managed a pub and I had my own flat. He paid for me to fly out in April for 3 weeks to see what I thought and I loved it . He is going to ask about me being added to his 457 where I believe the requirements are living together for 6 months which we obviously cant do.

So before I get my hopes up I am investigating other avenues. We are both over 30. I have a pretty good job in the UK which I can apply for a career break (not guaranteed to be given) of up to a year. Question is shall I try and get this and "visit" him for 6 months on a tourist visa and then apply to be added while in Aus. Or stay there for a year and come back to work and then apply. We are planning to get engaged in september when he is home although I know this has no bearing on any visa apps. I also want to do right by my employers as not to burn all bridges for the future and right by immigration.

Also I know in Victoria you can register a relationship but do you have to be resident to do this? or any other conditions?

We just really want to be! Anyone who has had experience of this Id love your advice.

Thanks x
