For Perth and Adelaide, the rationale for that was to avoid people saying
"Oh, the next one won't be on the wrong coast, it'll be in Adelaide,
I'll go there instead" or "Rather than fly to Adelaide I can just drive
to Canberra". I suspect it's been mostly tradition since that point.

OTOH, if we're getting to the state where we're selling out reasonably
reliably and don't want to increase the size of the conference too much,
