Australia has some bizarre historical anomalies wrt term of protection of photographs. Photographs taken on or after 1 May 1969 are protected for 50 years after the first publication (or indefinitely if unpublished) (see s.33(6) Copyright Act 1968)

Photographs taken before 1 May 1969 are protected for 50 years after expiration of the calendar year in which they were first taken. (see s.212 Copyright Act 1968)
