no, I booked a return ticket because it was only slightly more than a one-way ticket. Also I knew I had to go back at some point to sort out shipping of my possessions. After a few months I also wanted to go back to see my family and have a break from Australian summer. The ticket I booked is flexible, so depending on visa grant date I would have been able to delay the flight (or take it earlier). I will now take the flight as initially booked, because IMMI contacted me yesterday that they are ready to grant the visa.

At the airport the immigration officer did not care if I had a return ticket or not. I had everything prepared: printed itinerary, bank stements to show that I have sufficient funds, the eVisitor grant letter and the 309 application submisstion receipt from IMMI. He didn't want to see a thing.
When previously entering Australia, I was asked if I'd been before, where I was going, how long I was going to stay, who'm I was staying with etc.
This time we just chatted about the weather in Canberra. He probably saw on his screen that I applied for a partner visa.

I did not have a CO when I flew to Australia. I did contact the High Commission in London to ask if there was anyone in particular I had to notify that I was going to be in Australia and he gave me a long blabla about the rules and condition about visas and how I have to be a genuine visitor to use the eVisitor. Basically everything thats on the website and should be know to everybody (no work, leave after 30 days etc.). The last sentence was something like "Just update your address details via your IMMI account." (Change of addresss form within your 309 application and in your personal details of the account settings). Also when you enter Australia, they will scan your passport. Therefore you should be registered as "in Australia" in their system anyway.

I would have gone to Bali or NZ if the visa had come through earlier, but since I got the notification yesterday, and my return flight to Europe is in 4 weeks anyway, I'll just use that flight to get out of the country and return a few weeks later.

You really shouldn't worry. MANY people go to Australia on a tourist visa while their application is being processed (eVisitor or 600). It really is no problem. You just have to be prepared to potentailly be bored if you are staying with your partner all the time and he works a regualr job. Not being able to work can be quite a pain. For me it's only been 6 weeks since I arrived plus another 4 weeks until I depart, but if you really end up waiting 12 or 14 months....you will get bored being home alone all the time (I guess also depends on where you are and if the heat stops you from doing outdoorsy stuff most of the day).
Thanks so much for the detailed reply. Helps a lot! And CONGRATULATIONS on your grant!!

Visa granted

Have been a silent reader so far but as I liked reading here to get a feeling what was going on with others, I at least wanted to add my result.

Also got my visa granted (309 and 100). Waiting time was almost exactly 7 months. Case officer was K. Good luck to all the others.
