309 medical - in australia or offshore?

hello there! i am new but i hope you don't mind me asking this question.

i am australian (by birth) and my partner is swiss. she is currently in australia on a 572 student visa.

we are planning to apply for a 309 (offshore) visa in june after we have lived together for 12mo. as she entered australia on a return plane ticket we are both taking a holiday back to switzerland and it makes sense to apply offshore as the application fee is $800 cheaper.

i have looked over the requirements for the visa and just have one question about the medical - do we have to submit a medical exam that was undertaken in switzerland? or can we submit one that was undertaken in australia? it seems to me that immi would be quicker to approve a medical that was conducted in australia but i am not sure.

thanks for your help

- dan

cost is $303 - which is much better than in swiss where it would cost 688 CHF.. about $700..!! yowch.
