Low risk countries are those countries with which Australia has connections with and enough faith in their governmental structure such that ETAs are available to their citizens.

No, its low risk. Any country which uses ETA is low risk.

What about a low risk applicant (from Britain) applying from a high risk country (UAE) have heard mixed reviews e.g. he will be treated as high risk since applying from here even though UK citizen. Thanks

It is the nationality of the person and not where they are applying from that determines HR/LR re security issues and there is also time spent in countries considered to have high health risks but that is a separate issue.
