This issue is symbolic of the way the aboriginal people and their culture have been treated for the last 220 years. They have been walked over by contemporary society to the extent where pride in themselves and the ancient culture they uphold is nearly non-existent. By saying I will not walk up the rock you are acknowledging their culture as a part of you as Australian and part of todays society and helping to restore some of the pride that was destroyed by our forebears. Let the locals make some cash from the international tourists but as an Australian I think this is one small symbolic choice you can make to show that you acknowledge and care about the wrongs of the past and present. Hopefully in the future we can accept aboriginal culture into our society so it has as much bearing on decissions as christianity.
If you don't care then climb the rock.
