Cradle Mountain is located in the alpine region of North West Tasmania and is one of Australia's natural jewels. The iconic mountain has stood the test of time and offers one of the most dramatic landscape views in the World.
Created over 20,000 years ago, Cradle Mountain was carved from ice out of the last glacial era to create the rugged peaks we see today.
Named in 1826 by Joseph Fossey for its distinctive appearance, Cradle Mountain soon became a the focus of many explorers. In the early 20th century many of the peaks and locations around Cradle Mountain were explored and named. It was not until 1910 that the importance and beauty of this area was recognised by Gustav Weindorfer. An Austrian migrant who settled in the region with his wife, Gustav is quoted as saying from the top of Cradle Mountain, "This must be a National Park for the people for all time. It is magnificent, and people must know about it and enjoy it"
Gustav spent considerable time in the region and bought land to build his alpine chalet (Waldheim) in the Cradle Mountain park. Gustav passed away in the Winter of 1932 but his work had been completed as the park was declared a National Park in 1922 when an area of 158,000 acres spending from Cradle Mountain to Lake St. Clair was name a "Scenic Reserve and Wildlife Sanctuary".
