Hey, I ahve just applied for the same kind of visa and wanted to go on a tourist visa to visit my husband, first they said that they do not recommend going to Australia on a tourist visa if I only want to spend there my time with my husband (!!!!!!!) and wait there for the partner visa to be granted. I replied that this is a total abuse of basic human rights, and then they said that yes, I can apply for a tourist visa. I know that many people have done that, but some claim that because they werein Australia on a tourist visa it took much longer to process their partner visas. It is very sad the whole process. Very depressing, so be ready to fight for your rights!

By all meand, put in for a tourist visa after lodging a 309.
You must still satisfy immigration that you are a genuine visitor though.

"some claim that because they were in Australia on a tourist visa it took much longer to process their partner visas" - there is no proof of this.
