Brick, I really feel you with the farm work thing, it's horrible.

I agree with Nelly, you should check out volunteering, particularly WWOOFing. It's unpaid but includes accommodation and food. My partner did part of these on a Hare Krishna farm and they were lovely. You may also be able to find something closer to where you live, so you guys can see each other more. I haven't tested this out yet (I'll let you know once DIBP has considered our 820/801 application) but I'd be concerned that the time apart doesn't count towards the living together requirement, so it might be worth registering your relationship as well.

Some farms may offer to sign off on her three months without her doing it (some want payment, some just understand how difficult the system is) we didn't do this as we knew that we'd then be in big trouble when it came to writing stat decs about when we were together. So keep that in mind - it was heartbreaking telling my partner that he couldn't take the out that someone had offered him.

Just make sure you stay in touch with each other - phone bills, skype or whatever will prove that you were still in touch even when you were apart.

Finally, it sounds like your second immigration officer was a bit unkind. Your diary will be useful - even if it's not proof, very few things are, and things like receipts are useful. I can imagine the diary being really touching, and as you've already found, some of it will depend on the officer that you get. The joint account is great, and i'm sure if you look around (try searching your email accounts for each others' names) you'll come up with more stuff. You've still got quite a bit of time to be each others' next of kin, join libraries, nominate each other as super beneficiaries, get invited to things together, enroll in korean classes, write a will, and, just maybe, start to have the conversation about telling her parents...
