>Can anyone name any other climbing areas in Australia that remain bolt

If my memory serves me correctly, there are a few areas in Western Australia which are no-bolt zones. I think parts of the coast near Albany, sections of West Cape Howe and parts of the Stirling Ranges. I think the climbing community came to a consensus to designate particular areas "adventure climbing zones" where there was to be no bolting, I think though it's kind of a voluntary thing i.e. it's not enforced by CALM (equivalent of Parks Victoria), though I think they were involved with discussion on the topic. Anyway this is what I vaguely remember from reading in the guidebook.

I think I quite like the idea of some areas being designated bolt-free (and this is coming from a sport junkie!) and I guess there is enough rock out there to make particular areas off-limits to bolting - but deciding which areas is sure to generate some controversy!
