Yes, you can apply on shore. But, there a bag load of issues that I suggest you seek professional advice on.

First, there is no guarantee you would be granted work rights.

Second, there is a serious chance this visa will be discontinued - they have already stopped it once and I would not be surprised they do again. In which case you could find yourself having to leave and leave fairly quickly.

You would not be entitled to any state benefits - so find yourself out of work and tough.

That is important as people can find it hard to get work while on a bridging visa as employers are rightly nervous of them.

You would also need to plan for retirement, as you would not be entitled to an Australian state pension, but, by then would probably also not qualify for UK either.

You would only be entitled to reciprocal health care rather than full medicare. This could cause serious issues down the line. You might not think that is important now, but when your 60 or 70? Add in, you cant just come back to the UK and get things like healthcare. You need to establish residence first, which takes time

If you wanted to study or anything, you would be regarded as an international student - see above.

Basically, you would have zero certainty of your future for your entire life. You may not even be able to buy a house - your not a resident.

Again, you need serious professional advice before considering this route
