Does anyone know a way to get your passport stamped while visiting Australia if you have an ETA visa?

Do you mean stamped with a visa? No

Stamped on entry? Depends where you are from.

I assume you want a PP full of stamps, showing where you have visited. On arrival, I would just ask the Immigration Officer to stamp it for you...

Smartgate never works for me, it's a joke between DH and me. He goes straight through, I go to the "Smartgate doesn't like you" line (but it's still a _lot_ faster than the regular line :-) ). DH says it's because I'm short, the camera can't see me :-D

Travelling in europe and arriving at London ( the home of the Queen of Australia) was my passport stamped, stating the limitations of my stay in the UK.

Elswhere in europe the immigration looked at the passport and waved you through.

You can have one of mine. I get stamped every time I enter and depart.
