This is why a little research beforehand is SO important. I Googled "remaining relative visa australia" and this page on the immigration website came up: Remaining Relative Visa (Onshore) (Subclass 835) This is the page you'd go to if you were looking for information on this visa on the immigration website.

On the very first page of that site, right at the top, one of the first things you see is "Who is this visa for?" It says specifically

"This visa is for you if both of these apply:
  • you have a brother, sister, parent (or step-equivalent) who is an Australian citizen, Australian permanent resident or eligible New Zealand citizen usually resident in Australia.
  • you and your partner have no brothers, sisters, non-dependent children, parents (or step-equivalents) other than those in Australia."

It says right there in black and white that in order to be eligible for this visa, you have to have a brother, sister, parent or step-parent to sponsor you. I know DIAC's information can sometimes be convoluted or confusing, but that seems pretty straightforward.

I'm sorry that (if your visa was actually refused and not just invalid) you're losing the money you've spent, but I hope that next time you'll see what you can find out before applying, and then ask questions if you have any, here or elsewhere, and save yourself all that time and trouble for nothing. It has to be so incredibly frustrating to be refused.
