10,000km should be fine for both oil and filter particularly if using synthetic. Yes, you can go even longer but since you should be rotating your tires about that point anyway you might as well kill three birds at once. So, changing oil and filter AND rotating tires at 10,000km would be good practice and not particularly expensive.

A good synthetic oil should last far longer than 10,000km, but in my view it's good to give your car a once over at about that interval and doing a more complete checkup couldn't hurt.

Remember to check your other fluids (washer, coolant, brake/clutch cylinders etc. Belts and hoses...
