Since when have Qldrs ever sought Vic opinions bro?
What happened to the traditional State rivalry?
... but since you’re asking and want a Vic flavour on it - and also because it’s a NP, it’s really not worth doing unless there is a significant site or something else of cultural value involved.
Take for example how we are right up there with Rio Tinto when it comes to developing sites! Those pesky West Australian caves that got demolished weren’t in the same climbing calibre as Taipan Wall!
Maybe Qld should use a local comparison and your future friend develop the climb in similar flavour of Kangaroo Points’s development, after all, there be plenty of common ground in Qld sentiment with Fauci and the w.h.o dictatorship for moral support.
