Am I an Australian tax resident on a WHV

I'm new

my partner and I came here in March to explore Australia and see if we'd like to live here. I kept all my in assets in the uk as I was unsure about the move. We would have liked to explore more, but COVID got in the way. We did manage to do a 5 week road trip up Queensland. 

I never left my uk job and they continued to pay me as if I were just on one long remote working holiday. As it stands I think I'd like to return to the Uk (if COVID will allow), but do I have to declare my foreign income to ATO? I checked out the article about WHV tax residency and I think I fall under the non resident as my intentions aren't 100% to migrate but to explore (even though covid hasn't allowed that). But want to double check.
