The shortest flights to the Philippines from Australia take an average of about 8h, taking off from either Melbourne, Sydney or Brisbane and landing in Manila, the capital. If you fly from Brisbane, you’ll be flying with Philippines Airlines, which departs five days a week bound for Manila. These flights take about 8h and 10min. Philippines flights from Sydney are operated by Cebu Pacific, Philippines Airlines or Qantas. Your flight will take the same time as those out of Brisbane. Melbourne offers Cebu Pacific and Philippines Airlines flights, which are slightly shorter, taking about 7h and 55min, with Cebu Pacific flying out once a day. Longer flights are also available if you don’t mind making a stopover. You can leave from Sydney on Singapore Airlines and get to Manila in about 16h and 45min, or from Melbourne, also on Singapore Airlines, a flight of around 15h and 15min.
You can fly non-stop from Australia to the Philippines, from both Melbourne and Sydney airports. From Melbourne Tullamarine Airport (MEL), you can fly on Philippines Airlines, which offers flights every day except Mondays and Thursdays. Alternatively, you can book your airfare with Cebu Pacific, which offers daily relatively cheap flights lasting just under 8h. To fly directly from Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport (SYD), you can choose between Philippines Airlines or Cebu Pacific or catch a Qantas flight. These take just over 8h. Philippines Airlines also operates from Brisbane Airport (BNE), offering flights of the same duration. In all cases, your destination airport will be Manila’s Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL). The shorter one-stop flights from Sydney are predominantly flown by Singapore Airlines, stopping over at Singapore Changi Airport (SIN) en route to Manila. You can get less expensive flights if you don’t mind longer stopovers. In this case, Qantas Airways flies from Sydney to Changi Airport, where you’ll change planes to Philippine Airlines to Manilla. The journey will take about 30h. Another 30-hour option is to fly all the way on Thai Airways, stopping at Bangkok Suvarnabhumi Airport (BKK) en route.
Manilla is the most densely populated city in the Philippines. Once you’ve spent a few days exploring the capital, you can head off to some of the other tourist cities in the country. Quezon City is a very popular destination, and it will only take you about 25min to get there by train, or about 40min by bus. If you’ve opted to hire a car for your trip or take a taxi, the drive takes a little over 10min. Davao City is on the southernmost island in the Philippines, so your best bet is to hop across on a domestic flight, which will take about 4h. However, if you’re on a road-tripping holiday, you can catch a car ferry from Manila to Dipolog, which will take about 33h, and then drive the remaining distance in about 8h. If you want to stay on the main island, you can visit the inland Luzon region, travelling to Umingan in about 5h by bus, or 3h using a combination of bus and taxi. If you’re driving yourself, it will take you about 2h and 30min.
As an Australian citizen, you are free to visit the Philippines for up to 30 days at a time without needing a visa. If you want to stay longer, you can apply for a Philippines eTA visa waiver, which you can request online. You need to ensure that your passport will be valid for at least six months from the date you leave the Philippines and that you have enough money to support yourself during your stay.
