The Australian Embassy seem to be less forth coming currently with the 6 month tourist visa to Australia which also includes having a chest x-ray they are now more incline to award a 3 month visa again as it is deemed for a normal tourist who has just been awarded a 3 month visa to require 6 months holiday whether to spend more time together or not as tourist visas are for tourism purposes and not for spending time with your Australian partner in Australia.
So if you apply for a 6 month tourist visa and are awarded with 3 months then be happy with the result as a visa is better than no visa and it will give you that extra time to further your relationship in Australia.
