Walls of Jerusalem National Park

The Walls of Jerusalem National Park is part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. The park contains alpine vegetation and endemic conifer forests amid a high plateau of dolerite peaks. The landscape features found within the park include moraines and numerous tarns and lakes.

The Walls of Jerusalem National Park is very exposed to the extremes of Tasmania's changeable weather and with no road access and no casual visitor facilities bushwalkers need to be well-equipped and experienced in the often harsh Tasmanian conditions.

All persons entering the park must be fully self-sufficient.

Camping and accommodation

Bushwalkers must carry a tent. Huts within the park are small, in poor condition and suitable for emergency shelter only.

There is a camping platform and composting toilet at Wild Dog Creek. We recommend that walkers camp here in preference to Dixon's Kingdom.


The Walls of Jerusalem National Park is approximately a 1 hr 40-min drive, 200 kilometres south-west of Launceston, however the park itself is not accessible by road.  Bushwalkers must walk up into the park from the carpark located off the gravel Mersey Forest Road near Lake Rowallan.
