Resident Return query

Hi, I have previously been granted a partner visa 100 permanent residence. The travel Component expired Jan 2019.
I am still with the same Australian partner (10 years) and have a 7 year old son who was born in Australia and has dual citizenship.
We have lived in Uk since 2013 so I haven’t lived in Australia for 2 years since the PR was granted (I did live there prior to this for a number of years).
My partners family are all still in Australia, including his son from previous relationship.
We moved back to UK and I’ve stayed to support my mother who has a troubled mental health.
I wish to return for a holiday in December but I’m aware that if I enter Australia without resident return, my PR will be null and void.
Would I be eligible due to exceptional circumstances to be granted a further 5 year re-entry? We wish to move back to Australia in the future, but likely not in the next year as I have just been given the opportunity to complete an on job qualification.
Also, if I was granted a 1year RRV, and this expires prior to me moving back to Australia, would I be eligible to apply for a 2nd RRV?
Thanks in advance for you time.

If you don’t meet the 2 year residence requirement you cannot be granted a 5 year RRV. Yes, you can apply for a second 1 year one at a later stage.

Thanks for replying, I have another question... I saw on a different thread about RRVs, something about travelling on an ETA. Can I travel on an ETA as I just want to visit and not work for a couple of weeks without impacting on my PR?
