You could try for a RRV - you may get granted a year .. or if you can prove ties and compelling reasons why you've not been able to return. Might be worth speaking to a registered agent for some advice.

Is your whole family in Queensland?  If so, it would be worth applying for a RRV because you have close ties to Australia. Getting the RRV doesn't mean you'll be forced to return to live, it just means you'll be able to come and go freely as long as it's valid.

I agree with Ali and Marisa - depending on when you want to travel it’s worth taking a look to see if you can get an RRV. There’s obviously some expense involved, but it would help keep some options open. 

Even if you returned on an eVisitor you would not ‘cancel’ your former permanent status. The warning only applies if you have a current PR visa.
