Unhappy Tourist and partner visa

Im an Indian, married to an Australian PR.
I've already applied for a spouse visa ten days back... I jus heard that it wil take about five to six months to get my visa granted....seriously long time..and I miss him a lot..... Is it possible and wise enough to apply for an tourist visa now , jus to spend time with my husband ...rather than sitting here bored..Will it lead to any complications in my spouse visa application..??

It'll not lead to any complications in an offshore visa application unless for some reason you happened to be in Australia when it came to be time to grant the visa and they tried for you being in Australia would see that it was rejected and it could mean starting again with another application.
As harsh as that may seem, as soon as people varu their location from offshore to onshore or vice versa and expect that Immi will account for that, it just puts more work on the system, a system designed for masses and not individuals who have the onus of compliance.
In reality, a Form 1022 to advise Immi of your movements may hopefully see that a visa is not jeopardised but that will depend on how an overseas location operates and humans can always err.

The first step for you however is to gain a visitor visa and they can be difficult to be obtained for some, there being local processes in India.

I expect the government over time has analysed data on which countries people come from that may overstay on visas rather than returning when they should and so in turn they introduce policies to attempt having some control over that, it in most cases meaning that more is required of an applicant for there to be assurance that they will not overstay.
In the case of people already having applied for a partner visa, it may be easier but there have also been cases where even people with partner visa application have not been able to get a tourist visa.
There is no set time for being contacted even though I've noticed some posters on one thread expecting it to be so as if it is their right, the reality being that the numbers of applications and Immi staffing in India as well as any directions from Immi management in Australia re general global trend on numbers will determine processing times.
I've seen some people post a few months back how processing times expected of 4-5 months was out to 5-6 months and if numbers of applications are up, that could go higher and someone just posted re being advised in the US that it could be somewhere between 5-10 months.
You can use as a guide Client Service Charter
And as for notifying Immi people about any travel or any other changes use Form 1022

It does depend on the local office way of working but usually an email/letter is sent depending on what means of contact you have nominated to let people know that their application has been received.
Nothing more may happen for some months until such time as a CO has done a preliminary check of your application and they are ready to take it to the next step and that is when you can expect some contact.
