I don't want to change the definition - but the tourism industry does becasue it is a great marketing term and suits their desire to get maximum $$ per person visiting - not because they have any intention of going to an actual wilderness. Arapiles has lots of visitors but they are perceived as not spending much. The idea that build and they will come seems to be driving this without understanding why people visit Araps. The first report seems to have come to the conclusion that people come to climb and not spend big on a "wilderness, eco-holiday". Someone in Council doesn't/won't/can't accept this and wants to chase the percieved profits. Hopefully, reality will sink in at some stage that Arapiles isn't and never will be a holiday destination in that sense.
