Been there for years and generally used by “groups” either commercial or booked groups

You might be referring to a different platform tastrax. Workers were close to completing the new one when I was there in February. My mate sent an email to Parks with a few queries about the new platform. Here is part of the response:
Terms and Conditions:
Maximum Limit of 3 nights at a time, per booking.
One double camping platform available, i.e. room for roughly two double tents or 4 single tents.
Require responsible/accountable booking name. (person is to carry photo ID).
The booking name of the walker must be present on the platform and proof of booking in the form of emailed “itinery” and photo ID will be requested by rangers.

Parties booking the facility adhere to the terms and conditions to the Overland Track group site and are required to stay on the platform and not to use huts or camp anywhere other than the platform provided.
Sometimes, I use big words I don't always fully understand in an effort to make myself sound more photosynthesis.
