Marion’s Lookout

marions lookout, cradle mountain, cradle mountain national park, australian landscape photography

Hi Everyone,

Well by now you all know the story, I did the walk to the base of Cradle Mountain.   Well this spot was taken 2.5hrs into the journey, in fact I was only ever intending to go to this place called Marion’s Lookout and no further.

Why I continued on I’ll never know nor ever regret, I guess I figured I’d come this far, why stop?   Marion’s Lookout really does provide an absolutely amazing view of both Cradle Mountain but also of the surrounding area and I spent quite sometime here just soaking it all up.

Its easy to see why Gustav Weindorfer wanted to spend all of his days here.

I hope you guys enjoy it.

      Hi Tim,

      Thanks mate. I did think about doing that but I really wanted to draw people’s attention to the mountain itself.
