The MacQuarie Concise Dictionary of Australia.

axis - the central line of any symmetrical .....
axes - plural of axis

I myself have used axises (no red underline for spell check as I typed 
that) on this list.

To uses the spelling found in computer science (which was largely 
American to begin with) is confusing for English speakers in Britain, 
Australia and New Zealand.

My 2 cents...
