YES

You should also be prepared for the fact that your doctor should notify Immigration. 

TB is a growing problem in many western countries, including Australia, and it is very easily spread.

Is there no problem in this next time I will apply another tourist visa application?

Don't you understand? TB is a killer. If you think you have it you need to see a doctor, get it treated, and admit to it every time you are asked about it.

If your tourist visa application asks the question you must answer it honestly, for the sake of the health of everyone breathing the same air as you.

TB is easily spread and the longer contact time (your partner) the more likely it will be .  Tell her, get treated, get it sorted. You will affect those people who share workspaces, public spaces, and even flights with you.  TB is treatable, why would you not treat it?  If you have a harder to treat such as MDR or XDR TB which can be prevalent in eastern Europe (maybe 2.3B people (yes, billion) have latent TB then it's even more important to stop these spreading.

 

You have NO idea how hard it is to contact trace all the people you will have exposed.  Put a stop to it.

Also, if you ever apply for residency you WILL have mantoux and X ray and it will show all previous lung scarring and residual TB infections both active and inactive. etc. So absolutely zero benefit in lying unless you're actively trying to die and take loved ones with you in quite a slow and painful way. Managed TB is fine and treatment ensures you are non infectious and can move around freely until it's gone after a while under quarantine.

Blimey, never lie to Immigration!

Absolutely you need to get it checked and fixed but expect problems should you ever try and get residence in Australia.

then next time you are asked about it just admit it. They may ask you to do a medical but if you no longer have TB you will pass the medical and get the visa.

Just be honest, for the sake of everyone's health, including your own.
