For each visit, a traveler can maximally stay in the country for 3 months (90 days). However, there is a way to prolong your trip if your visa is still valid. You must leave Australia for at least 3 days and then come back. You will be able to spend in the country 3 months more.
Australian visa requirements for travelers from Finland
In contrast to other existing visas, an Australian tourist visa doesn't require many supporting documents. All you need to have is a passport.
