Cradle Valley is possibly the most popular destination for visitors to the Island. A picture of Cradle Mountain is the most recognizable image of Tasmania apart from perhaps the Tasmanian Devil. With less than 30 days a year of sunshine it is a real treat to be able photograph in such clear and pleasant weather after a fresh snowfall.

This is the starting point for the world famous “Overland Track” wilderness walk. A 6 to 8 day hike through 80km of the World heritage park of Cradle Mountain & Lake St Clair. In 1912 Kate and Gustav Weindorfer built a rustic home and guest chalet at Cradle Valley. Weindorfer and a small group of ardent supporters, including Major R E Smith and Fred Smithies, campaigned to have the Cradle Mountain area reserved.

In 1922, an area of almost 64,000 hectares between Cradle Mountain and Lake St Clair was gazetted as Scenic Reserve under the Scenery Preservation Act.
