The 475 is a provisional visa or temporary residency one whereas the 176 is permanent residency and so with PR you do not have to pay international fees for tertiary study and also in some states primary or secondary study like you may have to with a temporary residency visa.

Have a look at the different visas via Visa Options – Professionals and other Skilled Migrants – Workers – Visas & Immigration and look under the of " about this visa " and " how it works " and you'll find information.
You will need to look at what the situation is for particular states re primary/secondary education.
You should also have a read of the What's New Link announcements re priorities for visa processing and State Migration Plans.
