Kindred - A Cradle Mountain Love Story - Gustav Weindorfer and Kate Cowle
Gustav Weindorfer was an Austrian immigrant; Kate Cowle came from Tasmania. He grew up beside the Carinthian Alps; she climbed mountains when few women dared. Their honeymoon glimpse of Cradle Mountain lit an urge that filled their waking hours; others might have kept this splendour to themselves, but Gustav Weindorfer and Kate Cowle sensed the significance of a place they sought to share with the world. When they stood on the peak in the heat of January 1910, they imagined a national park for all.

Kindred: A Cradle Mountain Love Story traces the achievements of these unconventional adventurers and their fight to preserve Tasmania's Cradle Mountain wilderness where they pioneered eco-tourism.
