'In Australia, any donations to parties or candidates below the current threshold of of $12,400 (USD 11,010) (set at $10,000 in 2006 and indexed annually to the rate of inflation) can remain anonymous. In addition, due to a loophole, a donor can conceivably donate separately to each State and Territory branch of a Federal party, as well as the Federal party, resulting a total of $99,200 (USD 88,080) (8 X $12,400) being able to be donated without disclosing the identity of the donor.'
