The Philippine Embassy in Canberra and the Philippine Department of Tourism-Sydney have launched the #IAmFilAussie social media campaign featuring Filipino-Australians in all the States and Territories of Australia. This project is a partnership between the Philippine Embassy in Canberra and the Philippine Department of Tourism-Sydney, in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the Philippines-Australia Diplomatic Relations.

The campaign started last 28 June 2021 with a video featuring Fil-Aussies in Tasmania, followed by a video of Fil-Aussies in New South Wales, South Australia,Tasmania, ACT and Victoria. The videos featured Fil-Aussies and what they love the most about the two countries they call home.

The latest group happily sharing their sentiments are the Fil-Aussies in the Northern Terriroty.  It is shown in the one frame video on the Philippine Embassy FB page post:
