Spouse visa working on 820

I am Australian living in UK for the last 12 years with my British / Albanian husband. We were planning to apply for the spouse visa from abroad on the 309 form but am wondering if it would better to apply from Australia on the 820 visa instead and move there before applying.
My questions are can you enter on the e tourist visa and apply on the 820 visa and stay there and does the 820 allow you to work there?
We would only apply from Australia if we knew he could definatley work there. Thanks

If you are in Australia on a valid tourist visa without “ no further stay” condition , you can apply for a partner visa onshore.

If you lodge a valid partner visa onshore, you will be granted a bridging visa A, which will have full work rights once it comes into effect.

The bridging visa A will come into effect when the tourist visa ceases.

The sc. 820 visa, once granted, will also have work rights.

There are proposals to change the rules around sponsorship ( must be approved first) which could complicate the above scenario, if implemented.

In short your plan of the 820 is fine currently, but no work till the e visitor expires (so for 3 months).
