Mount Geryon is a mountain in the Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park in Tasmania, Australia. It is the ninth highest mountain in the state.

It is a major feature of the national park, and is a popular venue with bushwalkers and mountain climbers. It has more than 40 ascent routes for climbers, some of which are over 300 metres in height; however, it is the impressive east face at 500 metres in height for which Mount Geryon is most popular.

There is a famous nearby tarn which is known as the 'Pool of Memories'.
