600 visitor visa refused

Hello, I am looking for support / options for how to proceed with a refused 600 visitor visa.

Brief overview of the circumstances.
2013 July - applied for visitor 600 visa (offshore) granted, arrived shorly after
2014 July - departed before visa expired
2014 August - applied for visitor 600 visa (offshore) granted, arrived shortly after
2015 July - left and came back, extending the visa 12 months
2016 May - applied for visitor 600 visa (onshore) refused

What can I do in this situation, the reason stated is that a visitor visa cannot be stayed on for more than 12 months. Should I leave Australia, apply from outside?

July 2013 to now on a Visitor visa ?

I think that they think you are living in Australia on a Visitor visa.. Not exactly what they are designed for

Maybe time for a different Visa ?

What country are you from ?

Visa Route: 600/300/600/820/801 PMV to PR 44 months.

You generally cannot spend more than 12 months in Australia on visitor visa during any 18-month period. So you'd likely need to spend at least 6 months outside Australia before applying again.
