Except (at least) in Tasmania, where it's down to whether the public 
normally has access to the venue "whether or not by payment or 
invitation". AFAIK the general public are able to go in to University 
lecture theatres whenever their doors are open.

Not so much, maybe, at dedicated commercial conference venues. Of which 
I doubt any Tasmania would be capable of hosting LCA so, at least from 
our laws, it's a bit of a moot point I'll agree...
