Good luck in any case!
I just looked on the australian government web site and as far as i can see a visitors visa to australia will cost any thing from $130 to $335 depending how long you want to come for,
and it says you need to be the passport holder of a certen country, and the philippines IS one of those countries now. they have added a lot more countries to the list,

The 28 days is a guide only I believe and you shouldn't be too concerned about that. My guess is they'll grant the visa but ask you as the sponsor to post a bond, I think it's normally 5k Aussie.

Good luck
She has been here 3 times before, and i never had to post a bond. and the first time they put
NO further stay on her passport, that means you can not stay or reapply for an extension on your visa,
2nd time they put no further travel on her visa, that means cant travel any where else.
3rd time there was no restrictions at all, that means could have got married here and reapplied for a onshore partner visa, and she could have stayed. BUT she was still married at that time so we could not do that.so she had to go back.

With the bond it's decided case by case, so just because you haven't needed it before it doesn't mean this time you won't. Repeated visits will cause suspicions rather than ease them for immigration I think...

yes i think you are correct there, same as visa restrictions, just because there were none last time does not mean there will be none next time. cheers.

I have noticed with a lot of australian government web sites they will tell you some thing and make it sound so easy, then on the end they will have a big fat, PLEASE NOTE. then they will tell you all the things that will stop you from doing what you want to do. very good at doing that.
for eg. they now include a philippine passport holder to be able to get a tourist visa online so simple.
and then they want to know what you had for breakfast and the last time you went to the toilet before they grant a visa .
