With such facilities as fully equipped percussion and rehearsal studios, practice rooms, a MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) studio, and a "Pro-Tools" recording studio, ABMUSIC uses the latest in technology to develop students' understanding of production and engineering in the contemporary music industry. Students that progress through the three years of study of the Music Industry Training Package and complete the Certificate IV in Music at ABMUSIC are 'job ready' upon graduation.

Services for ABMUSIC students are designed especially for the indigenous community and include;

The "Food for Thought" program wherein students are provided with breakfast on arrival in the morning.

Description

The Aboriginal Cultural Material Committee (ACMC) advises the Minister for Indigenous Affairs on matters relating to Aboriginal heritage. The Committee consists of Aboriginal men and women from different parts of Western Australia to ensure culturally appropriate decisions are made about sensitive material or sites. One of the members has to be a specialist anthropologist. There are also three ex-officio members from the Department of Indigenous Affairs, the WA Museum and the Department of Regional Development and Lands.


CMC functions

Under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 the ACMC is established as an advisory body.
The Committee evaluates the importance of Aboriginal sites on behalf of the community and recommends recordings and preserving the traditional Aboriginal lore related to sites (if appropriate).

The role of the Committee in considering an application for land development consists of:
1. Determining whether a site exists under section 5 of the AHA.
2. If it is determined that a site exists, then the significance of the site is evaluated under section 39(2).
3. Recommending to the Minister whether to grant or decline consent to the applicant to use the land, and whether conditions should apply to any consent granted.

ACMC meetings
The ACMC meets every first Wednesday of the month except in January.

Prior to each meeting the Committee advertises all applications it has received on the DIA website and in the West Australian to provide the information to the public. Applications for land development (s18 notices) have to be submitted before the advertised closing date. Applications submitted after the closing date will not be considered for the upcoming ACMC meeting. They will be considered for assessment for the meeting after.

Application requirements
All applications that are submitted to the ACMC must meet certain requirements so the ACMC can make an informed decision under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 1972 (please note that the number of copies of documents (both hard copy and electronic format) required to be submitted has recently changed):

The section 18 application form must be completed & signed by the owner of the land and/or applicant. An applicant who is not the owner of the land must include a letter of authorisation signed by the land owner to undertake the purpose described in the application.
A cover letter addressing the application and supporting documentation.
A list of attachments/inclusions, e.g. Certificates of Title, photographs, maps.
Final coloured versions of Aboriginal heritage survey reports. Draft reports will not be accepted.
DIA Aboriginal site recording forms must be submitted for all newly recorded sites and all previously registered sites that have new information recorded as part of the s18 application process. All photographs, diagrams and maps must be in colour. Site recording forms are considered as part of the application.
Five copies of all documents are required, collated to make five individual ‘packages’ with all attachments and inclusions (but not in a bound single volume). All maps / diagrams / photographs must be in colour for each copy.
Two digital copies of the application package, inclusive of all attachments, maps, spatial data (shapefile format preferred), on CD or other digital media.

After evaluating the s18 Notice, the ACMC makes recommendations to the Minister for Indigenous Affairs regarding the Heritage values of affected areas. The Minister makes the final decision on whether consent for a s18 application will be granted and under what, if any, conditions.

Set amongst large shading trees and a sea of shade sails the Broome Turf Club offers a range of facilities to accommodate all race goers.

  • Local Clubs:Sports

  • Sports:Horse Racing

Description

WELCOME TO THE UNIQUELY BEAUTIFUL BROOME TURF CLUB.
Thoroughbred horse racing in Broome has evolved out of the dust and the Broome Turf Club has arguably become one of the most progressive race clubs in Australia, whilst still retaining a well loved country picnic atmosphere.

The Broome Turf Club is carved out of bush land at picturesque Gantheaume Point, just a stones throw from world famous Cable Beach. This idyllic location perched on the Broome peninsula is surrounded by the Indian Ocean and benefits from the constant cool breezes which are a welcome relief in the hot and humid climate of the Kimberley.

Today the Broome Turf Club has transformed from its rustic ‘pindan’ roots into a relaxing, shady oasis. A day at the Broome races is an experience unlike most others, and one that many international tourists seek to repeat. A highlight of the tourism calendar in Broome, it is a place where members of the multi-cultural community mingle with visitors from far and wide.

The main attraction is competitive racing on the firm dirt track, which is well complimented by the highly social and community aspects of race days. A joyful and colourful scene, the clubs hospitality is enhanced by local and imported entertainment throughout the day and evening.

Set amongst the balmy tropical climate the post race party extends well into the evening with patrons reluctant to go home. A good time is had by all who try their hand at tossing the coins in the uniquely Australian game of two-up, or for those who choose to dance the night away to the sound of great live entertainment.

The nine week race season culminates in the highly anticipated Broome Cup Carnival. Incorporating a vibrant Ladies Day on Tuesday August 12th and Saturday 16th 2014- always a sensational Broome Cup Day - leaves punters yearning for the next years season. Everyone who has ever had the pleasure of experiencing the Broome races always returns, for this is truly ‘the winter racing alternative’.
