Default Overstayed visa 18 years ago when a minor, any issues entering Australia

As the title says, entered Australia when I was 6 left when 17 on a bridging visa (have no idea which type). I wasn't deported, left on my own accord.

I haven't been back since, I applied for a ETA visa and was approved within a minute. I plan to visit Oz next month with the wife and travel for 7 days. Getting a little nervous as all flights and hotels are booked. Both me and Mrs have stable jobs and have no intention of staying longer than the planned 7 days. Am I just been nervous or am I missing something? Like getting visa straight from the embassy. Been looking all over the internet and I think I should be ok with ETA visa.

Any input welcome

you are not responsible for your actions as a minor ...... don't worry ...... and if you had an issue, your ETA wouldn't have been granted.
