I am an Australian citizen travelling to Erbil, Iraq with my partner who is Australian born in Iraq and his family. I've heard different things regarding visas. Can you get one on arrival or do you need to apply for one in advance?

Erbil is in Kurdistan or Iraq Kurdistan so you can get a visa on arrival for free- 15 day stay but you can't leave the region as in, if you wish to travel to Baghdad, you will need the IRAQ visa
