Sending Money FROM Philippines to Australian Bank

Hi everyone.. what is the best way to send money FROM the Philippines to an Australian bank account?

Based sa nabasa ko, kapag bank-to-bank (e.g. BDO to NAB) malaki daw service fee and mababa exchange rates?

May nakapagtry naba through Western Union from Pinas? TIA

    Nafigure-out ko na best way (for me at least)... mababa palitan kapag Wester Union... 40Php Selling nila for 1AUD then my fee na around 800 pesos

    Nag pa bank to bank na lang ako thru BPI.... 38Php ang selling then 1K pesos fee.. then within the same day, pumasok na sa NAB account ko
