If an individual has no income for the FY they need to complete a non-lodgement advice to the ATO.  Does the same policy apply to a  Partnership which has had nil income, or does the Partnership simply do nothing?

Looks like you are required to lodge. Its how they confirm/match the income or loss you report on your own tax return as a partner of the partnership.

A partnership is not a taxable entity, but it must lodge a tax return at the end of each income year. Partners are taxed on their share of the profits of the partnership or are entitled to a deduction for their share of the losses incurred by the partnership as disclosed in their own tax returns.
