Unsolicited advice (hope you won't take offense!) but super manageable ng application for a Tourist Visa. I suggest you DIY it na lang, sayang bayad sa agent. 😅
If this helps any, these were my resources! https://www.thepoortraveler.net/2016/06/successfully-get-australian-visa-online-requirements-steps-filipino-tourists/ and https://www.klook.com/en-PH/blog/visa-guide-australia/. Note lang na baka di sila updated, so cross-check na lang with DHA.
Requirements I submitted (I am a full-time employee in the PH):

I think kung medyo busy si applicant sa work hindi tech savvy, well kailangan ang services ng agent.
Mapapadali like some senior parents na hindi computer proficient. For me malaki ang tulong ng agent kasi updated sila sa mga rules and regulations
Mas maganda rin yung bank statements will reflecting the Annual Average Daily Balance. Dun nila masusukat na hindi biglang lagay ang pera.
Saka yung Itinerary, wag na wag makalimutan imemorise yan sa airport. Malay natin marandom na maitanong ng immigration eh, maairport to airport kasi hindi namemorise.
Vacation Leave with company logo and name and signature of your employer (meron contact number rin) rin important kasi isa rin yan na matibay na evidence na may babalikan ka na trabaho sa Philippines
