Starting from the Waldheim Chalet at the end of Connells Avenue, Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, this walk takes you along the Weindorfers Forest Walk. Perfect for families, this lovely stroll takes you through a beautiful rainforest, where you'll see ancient King Billy pines, pandani and Tasmania's renowned deciduous beech. The track leaves from Waldheim chalet and takes a painless grade through the forest. Waldheim Chalet provides an insight into the early history of the Cradle Mountain area and the people who played a pivotal role in the establishment of Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, Gustav and Kate Weindorfer. A visual and audio display details the rich history of the chalet and the renowned hospitality and colourful lives of the Weindorfers. Although the chalet is no longer used for accommodation, the nearby Waldheim Cabins offer simple and affordable lodgings. Each cabin is equipped with electric heating, single bunk beds, basic cooking utensils, a small refrigerator, crockery, cutlery and a standard electric stove, making Waldheim an excellent base for further adventures within the park. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
