Can you take photos of people in public Australia?

We have no right to individual privacy in Australian law – this probably comes as a surprise to a lot of readers, but there you have it. Photographers, generally speaking, can freely photograph everyday situations, people and places, as long as they aren’t breaking any other laws (such as trespassing).15 Dec 2016

Is street photography legal in Australia?

There is no law prohibiting taking pictures in public places, such as streets, parks or beaches, even if those photos include the people being there. This sounds a bit tricky considering privacy acts, but, as a matter of fact, there is no law protecting people from being photographed while in a public place.15 Feb 2021
