Cradle Mountain is at the northern end of Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The Park is 2.5 hours west of Launceston and 90 minutes from Devonport.

The sheer magnificence of Cradle Mountain inspired Austrian born Gustav Weindorfer to build a chalet out of King Billy pine here in 1912 and work tirelessly to have the area declared a national park “for the people for all time”. His dream was realised in 1922, and today a quarter of all visitors to the state travel here to share his vision.
