Question Driver's License Q?

I will enter Australia holding a PMV ( Subclass 300). Could I drive using my the Philippine Driver's License or would I have to apply for a local one? Would the date of issue of my license be a problem since I would only get one by the end of this month, and if there will be no delays in the processing of my visa, I will be in Australia by June.

Thank you.

Generally, if the licence is in english, it should be OK, otherwise you ought to get an International Drivers Permit that an auto association/club or licensing authority in the Phillipines should be able to arrange so driving for the first three months is usually legal.

Thank you for your help Wanderer. Now I would not be worried that I could not drive in Australia.
