I disagree, it's like having a dinner party, say to celebrate Deepavali, and only planning and budgeting for your Indian friends (plus their family/guests of any nationality/race), to attend.
Would that be considered racist in Australia too?

You register, to apply for tickets. It not a given you will be invited.
The whole shtick here seems to a perception by a few, that the event should have been open to the public. It's as fanciful as saying if the Rolling Stones play Hyde Park (again) it should be open to the public. It wouldn't be, you'd need a ticket, as it is a private event.
