The Philippine Times is a monthly community newspaper established in 1990. It has been circulating and providing comprehensive community coverage keeping the Filipino-Australians informed of current news and events that are important to them.

The Philippine Times:
The voice of the Filipino community in Australia

The Philippine Times is a global Filipino-Australian newspaper dedicated to carrying news and features about Filipinos living in Australia. Now in its 33rd year, The Philippine Times carries stories of particular interest to Filipinos in Australia fostering a sense of collective identity and cultural pride as they connect to the Australian mainstream, their original home, the Philippines and to the world.

The Philippine Times is the longest-running Filipino newspaper in Australia and the only Filipino newspaper in Victoria. It records the dynamic lives of Filipino migrants, students, and workers in Australia, providing various sectors a medium for voicing perspectives on issues relevant to them.

A quarter-of-a-century’s work built on factual coverage and truthful delivery, the publication has proven itself as an official storyteller of the Filipino community and its politics and governance, arts and entertainment, and community services among others. It documents Filipino nationhood and community held from the far end of the diaspora, but never severed from the homeland.

The Philippine Times is a constructive forum for the advancement of Filipino-Australian interests. It caters to the diverse composition of Filipinos in Australia from being a newly-arrived migrant, a student, an entrepreneur, a senior citizen, a beauty queen, a sports enthusiast or a leader. 

While Filipinos in Australia are excellent workers and responsible family members, they likewise know how to party, raise funds, volunteer, take part in their local council or excel in whatever field they are interested in. They each have stories to tell the community and the world and there are issues that concern them and they find important. The Philippine Times is their medium to communicate to their intended audience.

While The Philippine Times has withstood the test of time, it still perseveres to make the delivery of stories more exciting and more meaningful. Our unwavering commitment to be partners with Filipino-Australians as they communicate to the world will remain. The Philippine Times will continue to deliver that invaluable service in new and innovative ways for years to come.

The Philippine Times as dedicated print and online publisher and unity promoter

Because of continuing service to many Filipinos, The Philippine Times is a respected publisher by the community. Around 90 percent of coverage is on Filipino community events like Philippine Independence Day, festivals and cultural celebrations, concerts, charity events, social and religious gatherings. 

The Philippine Times also assists Filipino-Australians to be integrated into the Australian community. This year, we are busy in the production and design of four separate books Filipino-Australians, Asther Creo, Dina Delfino, Joel Magpayo and Lydia John. Titled “Titik at Guhit: Proclaiming Life through Word and Art” the books will showcase the talents of the four authors not just to the Filipino community but to mainstream Australians.

During its 25th Anniversary celebration, Filipinos lauded The Philippine Times‘s mission to disseminate balanced and reliable information and provides commentary on issues affecting the community; for the Filipino community, The Philippine Times has become an institution. 

The Philippine Times as excellent reaching hand of truth and reliable information

The Philippine Times acting as the watchdog of the Filipino community might not always be desirable to some Filipino community leaders. Its role as a media is to be the eyes and ears of the Filipino community, to record the event and to inform the community of what is happening. It will continue the services to the Filipino community.

In keeping with the truth, it needs to cover controversies and disputes as part of its responsibility to keep its readers well informed of both the good and the not-so-good. The Philippine Times wants the Filipino-Australians to become critically informed individuals who take responsibility in whatever role they have, be it a member or leader of an organization or a citizen of their motherland or Australia.
