Walls of Jerusalem National Park

Access


View Larger Map

The Walls of Jerusalem National Park is not accessible via road.

Bushwalkers must walk up into the park from the carpark located off the gravel Mersey Forest Road near Lake Rowallan. The carpark is reached by following the Mersey Forest Road to Lake Rowallan, and then taking the gravel road on the left just after the Fish River.

The park boundary is reached by following the walking track up through forest for about 1/2 hour. It is a further two hours to Herods Gate, which marks the start of the high exposed plateau. The track is often wet and muddy.

Please be aware that when driving between sunset and sunrise you are sharing the road with wildlife.

Public transport and tours

Visitors wishing to use public transport or tours to access the park should visit our web page on Access to Tasmania's National Parks, Reserves and Walking Tracks.
