On Shore Partner Visa

My boyfriend(of almost 2 years) and I would like to move to Australia. He is an Australian citizen, I am Canadian. His work visa for Canada is running out and we would like to move back to Australia within the next couple of months. We were just in Australia in October and I have an ETA that is valid until August of next year. Because of our time frame we are wondering what the best way to lodge an application would be. We are thinking the Onshore Partner Visa would be the best way to go as we are limited on time and need to get back to Australia. What do I need to get into the country so we can apply for the Partner Visa? Can I get in (legally) on the current ETA I have or do I need to get another type of visa to get in. Can I say to immigration that I'm intending to stay and apply for the Partner visa or will they turn me away?
Any information anyone has on this would be great, thanks!

Coming on an ETA and applying runs the risk of both being denied and having trouble returning to Australia later. IMHO If you have lived together for over the LAST 12 months and can prove it, then you should apply offshore and either wait it out or then come on an ETA and be prepared to leave Australia so the visa can be granted.

Or if your relationship is truly serious enough you could apply for the 300 prospective marriage visa and enter Australia on that, marry and then apply for the onshore partner and stay.

If you are serious about a partner visa, you could always if you are eligible you could apply for a work and holiday visa and go over for on that visa for a year and then apply onshore for the partner visa when it is close to the end of WHV. If he was living with you in Canada, start gathering the information that you will need from living in Canada and have it with you when you go to Australia. If you don't have a joint bank account already - get one this will be beneficial for applying for a Partner visa.
