Yes - A visa is required for travel to Australia

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

A visa, called an Electronic Travel Authority (ETA), is required to transit through Australia, if staying for more than 8 hours - overnight stays in Australia do require a visa or ETA, even if the traveler is stopping on the way to a final destination.

The Australian ETA (visa) is issued and stored electronically. The traveler will not receive any document in the mail. Approval notification will be sent electronically (via email).
