Firstly, Australian passport holders don't need a short-stay (not "tourist") visa for a stay of up to 90 days in the Schengen counties.

Secondly, that stay can only be of up to 90 days per semester (six-month period), so a day-trip out of the EU doesn't "re-set" the visa which you don't have; you need to leave the Shengen countries for three months to do that...
