The mountain was named in 1877 by James Reid Scott on the suggestion of Thomas Bather Moore in honour of Professor John Tyndall, a Fellow of the Geological Society who made important contributions in physics, atmospheric science and geology.
The area is at the northern end of a block of mountains that are north of Mount Sedgwick.
Located at the base of the mountain are a number of glacial lakes, most notably Lake Westwood and Lake Dora. The mountain lies southeast of the Henty Gold Mine, and Hydro Tasmania dam on the Henty River; and south of Lake Makintosh, Lake Murchison and Tullah.
