Apply for an offshore partner visa after visitor visa is granted

I have applied for a normal touristic visa and it was granted for 6 months, but I have a (no further stay) condition on it, my question is:
1) can I apply for an offshore partner visa now as am leaving to Australia next week for my touristic visa?
2)the first question on partner visa application is are you inside or outside Australia.. So is it ok to say am outside and after a week be there?

as long as you are offshore at time of visa lodgement, then it will be fine. it doesn't matter what visa you are holding at that time.
you need to select "outside Australia"

above are my personal understanding for sharing, I am not a migtation agent

1. Yes, if you qualify (or even if you do not) in the latter case, if your application was valid, you would forfeit the visa application charge.

2.Yes

Is there any conflict between the information provided for the visitor visa application and what will be provided with a 309 application?

i was called on the phone by the Australian embassy and was asked why am i applying for a visitor visa not a partner visa, i told them the partner visa requires lots of documentation that we are still working on, but we intend to apply eventually, then after i was granted the visitor visa for 6 months it sounded like a very long time to postpone the partner visa, so we figured to apply before i leave and then upload the documents along the way. is that what you mean by conflict?

This is a great option - i wish we had taken this path. we met online in 2017, but didnt feel we had sufficient evidence to apply then instead i went overeas, and we automatically applied a visa 300. 10 months on still waiting....

what is your country of origin if you don't mind me asking, as i feel this plays into effect especially for a tourist visa and considering we already have a valid visa 300 in process.

yeah i totally understand what you went through, gathering the evidence is a hectic mission, I've been working on it for months now and still feel like it's not enough.
i really wish you the best luck in your visa granting journey <3
my country of origin is Jordan.
