Walls of Jerusalem National Park

Introduction

Walls of Jerusalem Icon

The Walls of Jerusalem National Park forms a part of the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. As the park is remote and not accessible via road, the Walls retains its wilderness character. There are no facilities for casual visitors, while bushwalkers are required to be well-equipped and experienced in the often harsh Tasmanian conditions. As with all natural areas, it is important that bushwalkers follow "Leave no Trace" guidelines. See "Before you Walk - Tasmania's Essential Bushwalking Guide and Trip Planner".

The region is an alpine wilderness dominated by dolerite peaks, highland tarns and lakes and alpine vegetation. The Walls of Jerusalem National Park is very exposed to the extremes of Tasmania's changeable weather.
