Working Holiday Visa (462) to Partner Visa

Hi there,
I saw a lot of topics on this from years ago, but I was hoping I could get a more recent, personalized response by posting my situation now.
I came out here on my first working holiday visa in June on 2019. In September of 2019, I met my now-boyfriend. I have yet to complete the conditions of my WHV (3 months regional farm work), but my boyfriend mentioned I probably won’t need to because we could get registered as a de facto couple in the state of Tasmania (where we’re living), and simply transition off my WHV onto a partnership visa after the de facto certification comes through (since obviously we haven’t been living together for 12 months at this point). I’m aware we haven’t been together terribly long but we want to be together and this is the only way we think we can do so.

So my questions are as follows:
Does this seem feasible? Is there anything we’re not thinking of?
Could the fact that I haven’t completed the 3 months of regional work cause an issue?
Is it true that getting registered in-state waves the 12-month cohabitation requirement for the visa?

Thank you so much for any help you can provide me with!

It does waive the 12 months defacto period but you still need to address the rest of the criteria which for such a short time would be difficult.
You say you meet in September so when do you consider the dating period to of finished?

We officially became a couple in early/mid-October and I moved in with him in January; my WHV doesn’t expire until June. Which other criteria besides living together/joint bank account/certificate do we need to address?

Thank you!
