In general Australia does not consider DUI a serious offence, the fact you have a 457 visa, would suggest you wont have it held against you on PR application. Just my thoughts.

They're looking for a conviction (prison time) of 12 months or more for things like serious violent crimes. I don't think you have anything to worry about. Obviously you still need to be honest and declare it.

Original Nationality: US
Visa #1: PMV (300) through Washington, D.C
Applied: April 2013.
Visa Granted: January 2014.
Visa #2: Subclass 820 (From PMV).
Applied: End of April 2014.
Visa Granted: Early July 2014.
Visa #3: 801 (PR)
Eligibility Date: End of April 2016 (Applied a month prior).
PR Granted: Early April 2017.
