"A National Park, for the People, for All Time" - Gustav Weindorfer

Brief History

Built by Gustav Weindorfer, famous for attracting visitors to Cradle Mountain at the beginning of the 20th Century.

Replaced in its entirety in the early 1980s by Mr Murrell, Director of the National Parks and Wildlife Service, in a single night of frantic work, it is now a museum to all. Accommodation is available in other huts behind the Chalet.

A key driver behind Weindorfer was his wife, Kate, on whom a separate book has been written.
