One of the big issues for me is how they expect to manage the cattle so they won't trash the sensitive areas - unless there is fencing to keep the cattle out of the waterways or areas with rare grass communities ...

Do not forget the Govt. ban on live cattle left many 1000s of small cattle behind to grow and are now unsuitable for export. They are so tough they are unfit to eat without fattening on good pastures and now there are quite a few Brahman type on the western slopes of NSW ready for mincing for MacDonald's. Grazing in a NP may prevent the authorities doing a prescribed burn, many of which turn out to be a disaster.
So planning would not have helped when the system is suddenly changed.
Cheers  Chris
