Or alternatively, it may be that better participation may have been caused by some unrelated factor (like a booming economy).

    Secondly, both the contiguous states of the USA and Europe have vastly higher chess player density than Australia, which means that whilst tournament organisers there compete with each other, tournament organisers here often have monopoly-like control over chess tournaments in a given region for a given weekend (try organising a tournament in Sydney over Easter if you disagree); so the comparison between them and us is a non-sequitur.
    It is quite possible to organise a chess tourney in Sydney over Easter - there is no monopoly. Indeed it was done for many years sometimes with excellent attendance when located in inner city.
