Abstract

Owing to the kind invitation of Mr. Rodway and
Professor Flynn, the writer had the good fortune to be
a member of a party spending the last week of 1915 in
Mr. Weindorfer's Accommodation Hut near Cradle Mountain
in the north-west of the Tasmanian highlands.
Though there was little opportunity for detailed geological
work, many interesting features were observed,
which, at the request of the leaders of the- party, are
here recorded, and correlated with the scattered references
to this region in the writings of the few geologists that
have previously been in the neighbourhood. A sketch
map of the geological features, and a topographical sketch
map are also given, based on a manuscript map by Franz
Malscher, supplied by Mr. Weindorfer, and amended in
accordance with surveys made by the present party. The
following account must be considered rather tentative,
since lack of time prevented complete verification.
