Australia has become the second home for a number of Filipinos. In Blacktown, people born in the Philippines comprise 6.4% (19,436) of the total population making them the largest directly-born ethnic group in the city.
Most Filipino migration occurred during the 1980s, peaking in 1987-1988. In the 1990s, settler arrivals began to decline and the growth in the Philippines-born population slowed.
According to the 2011 Census, there are about 171,234 Filipino Australians. New South Wales had the largest number with 70,387, followed by Victoria 38, 006, Queensland 29,463 and Western Australia 17,234.
