That is indeed sad. From what I gather, the immigration generally allows 1 re-entry, maybe with a warning. The third and subsequent entries will be tricky. You may have to convince them that you are a genuine visitor, do not intend to work, and will leave before expiry of your visa. I could not find any rule as such on this, I think it will depend on the immigration official and whether he/she is convinced that your case is genuine or not.

I have re-entered on an evisitor visa several times. i was questioned each time, but as I was able to show my funds, a ticket out of Australia and told them I was staying to be with my partner there was no problem at all.

That was however without having applied for a partner visa, but I have talked to my CO and I will be doing the same again starting december as she said that would be ok.

I can only say we went to Singapore for 36 hours then returned with no questions from immigration.

You are well within your granted visa to use all entries you want, but never breach 1 of the conditions.

It should only be of Concern to Immigration that if she applies for another Visitor Visa after this one expires without, a reasonable time outside Australia. (So if she spends most of the year here on this visa - wait 6 months before applying for another visit visa. There is no hard and fast law on this time outside Australia.)

Also since you were blessed by the current visa not having "No Further Stay" on it. It would be wise to look at putting in a Onshore Spouse application as soon as possible - you maybe lucky to get that approved in is time and never need to spend the long period of time apart.
