I believe Australia is now at where Canada was maybe 8-9 years ago when it comes to the attitude towards riders/builders.
My home track has been ripped apart 3 times now in 5 years. Me and the crew spend countless weeks building and innovating to make the tracks more interesting and fun and then you rock up one day and it's all on the side of the road ripped to pieces.
We got a little bit more clever the last time though and rebuilt most of it out of rock+dirt and sometimes even some cement. The locals who have been ripping it all up seem to leave the dirt booters and landers alone.
Some NS has creeped back in pretty stealth like and the locals have let it be and we have even gotten a group of bikers together and sat down with the locals in a meeting of sorts discussing our differences.
Now we share the trails with walkers and horse riders and the last time they disagreed with one of our features they actually asked us to remove it instead of just destroying it without notice.
We complied and removed it as it can just as easily have been done with dirt which is what we are replacing it with.
Hopefully one day we will also have proper DH FR NS trails in my area, but until then, we will build and persevere…
