Customs enquiry for visiting partner


A quick question, Im Aussie and my Polish boyfriend is coming out to visit me for a month in March from the UK. He has just applied for his tourist visa and Im wondering if he gets questioned by customs for why he is visiting is it worth not mentioning he is coming out to see his girlfriend (me) and have a holiday?

Is it best that if anything comes up to say we are just friends and he is staying with me while he is here in Sydney. We both have mutual friends here as well that we will be catching up with in VIC.

Could someone please advice what might be best.
Thanks Diz
