It definitely is an amazing view. When I flew back into Broome today
the plane took a slightly different route than I've seen before and
followed the coast from the south for 15-20mins before landing. The
colour of the water was a brilliant turquoise colour and constrasted
against the almost glowing red coastline with the strip of beach look
great. Its a pity I didn't have my digital camera on standby to take
some snaps out the window as we were approaching Broome.
If anyone wanted to seriously do an LCA in Broome, it would technically
be possible if we could get the right people locally involved (namely
TAFE and the Shire as those two have appropriate venues close to each
other). If it was held at a time of year when there wasn't so many
tourists around, there would be heaps of accomodation available. Broome
during peak tourist season swells from a local population of 15000 to
over 3 times that figure at its peak, so there would be more than enough
choice of accomodation for ~500 people.
I think the big aim of Leon's little slideshow was to make people think
a little bit outside of the square and consider that LCA doesn't
necessarily have to be run in a capital city, or even a big capital city.
