First entry to Australia - Validity

Assuming I get the Skilled independent visa for me along with (my wife and kid as dependent).
How long is the Visa valid? ( I heard that's valid for 1 years from the date of issue.Is that true?)

Does that mean I along with my family should make our first entry to Australian before it expires (OR) Is there a specific date, normally much shorter that 1 year eg: 3 months before which we should make a First entry?

Can I leave first and call my wife and kid for a first entry later in case of 'first entry is 1 year valid from the date it is issued?'

Subclass 189 independent skilled visa gives you 5 years period time to stay in Australia. And there will be a specified data on the grant letter, advising that your first entry should not later than that date.

There are two dates to be aware of. The first date is typically 1 year from when you completed your medical/police checks, and you must make at least a short trip to Australia before that date to activate your visa. The second date is 5 years from the date the visa is granted, and after this point your entry rights will expire (the visa doesn't expire, just the entry rights).
