Yes it is stated officially that a pending GC application is not a reason to deny an E-3 application.

"An E-3 nonimmigrant shall maintain an intention to depart the U.S. upon the expiration or termination of his or her E status. E-3 visas are not dual intent visas in the sense of H-1B visas and L-1 visas. However, an application for initial admission, change of status or extension of stay, may not be denied solely on the basis of an approved request for permanent labor certification or a filed or approved immigrant visa preference petition."

EDIT: I have never been asked to show ties to Australia. I have had 4 x E-3 visas over the past 10 years. I have been living in the US since 2008 and have had new E-3s or E3R's in Toronto, Perth and Melbourne. The only thing I've ever been asked for is the LCA. I've never even been asked for my license to practice my (healthcare) profession.
