According to the link at the top of the page, The only visas exempt from the increases are Student visas and Visitor visas.

I don't think they'll increase tourist or student visas.

Ah, thanks for that correction, I had indeed misread. Well, in that case there's no surprise at all!

The increase is so disgusting! I think no one can justify the reasons behind it. Oh wait, the Labour can, its to fix their own mistakes at the cost of the emigrants who are not yet taxpayers. so shameful! two years ago we paid $2960 and now $4575! Lots of couples save up money very hard so they can pay that stupid fee to be together. Those unbelievable three times increases this years just smash people's dream and budget.

Woody, I hope you're right, but I've seen 3 different migration agents mention it now. If it had only been the one, I wouldn't have posted it. I try not to post information I haven't confirmed.

Here's another reference (besides the one linked by the MA in my original post):

Migration Amendment (Visa Application Charge) Regulation 2013

And I've now seen a reputable and well-known migration agent discussing it... so it's looking more and more like it's true.

The latter link is an official site, so this is no rumor anymore.

I have super-secret sources.

..Just kidding. I found this on another immigration message board where migration agents were talking about it. As Alnaibii says, that latter link is an Australian Government link.

yes its an official site that one not good we are glad we have put our application in last month but as people have said its hard just to get the money together for these Visas and everything else involved and they just making it harder for people not real fair i hope our fees for our next visas temp partner and partner will not go up for us u would think the fees for all our visa would be what they were when we put our application in
they probably will go up is just wishful thinking lol
