Your admissibility to Australia lies in the hands of the Australian immigration officers. They’re the ones who’ll decide whether you can legally enter the country or not. This decision making process begins when you apply for a visa, or even an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA).  It can also happen at the airport, or any port of entry. Determining a foreigner’s admissibility applies to all types of entry to the country, whether it’s by air, land, or sea.
 
If you have a criminal conviction, even a fairly minor one which did not result in any jail time, you should declare this truthfully on the ETA application.   Applicants with a criminal conviction, regardless of the nature of that conviction, will not qualify for an ETA and will need to refer to the nearest Australian mission for advice.
