For the first question - quote from PV CEO from the PV announcement:

We appreciate that Taylors Rock has previously been a popular spot for rock climbers and tour operators. Its our hope that the rock-climbing community, Traditional Owners and land managers can all work together to protect, celebrate and communicate this rich Aboriginal history.

Clearly this is a different approach than in the Grampians where massive areas are restricted with absolutely no justification, sites vulnerable to damage from hikers are not being protected at all, and recreational activities that generate income for PV are being allowed to damage the environmental values of the park.

Regarding the second question, these may be preventative measures rather than a reaction to damage that has already been done.

Society-at-large has decided to place power in the hands of TOs (rightly IMHO), and our presence will not be tolerated if we demonstrate that we cannot be trusted.
