The Walls of Jerusalem are part of the spectacular Tasmanian highlands, east of the famous Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park.
You’ll discover a mountain landscape only accessible by foot on this exclusive 6 - day adventure. Your adventure begins in the south of the National Park, bushwalking up onto the Plateau to our grassy camp nestled by Lake Myrtle.
From here we can choose to summit Mt Ragoona and Cathedral Mountain, both which provide impressive views over the southern wilderness of the famous Overland Track and the headwaters of the mighty Mersey River and its Never Never region.
The hike continues through remote alpine herb fields and highland lake country, sidling Lake Adelaide, Lake Meston and Junction Lake to name a few. In the northern confines of the park we base camp at Wild Dog Creek and spend two days exploring the surrounding peaks and valleys of the Central Walls region.
There is an option to summit King Davids Peak (1499m), Tasmania's 10th highest, as well as walks up Mt Jerusalem, The Temple, and Solomons Throne.

Tasmania TestimonialMeals excellent. Guide from Women Want Adventure and World Expeditions were made the trip. The hiking was sensational. It honestly felt like being away with a group of friends rather than a tour. Overall impression of the Walls of Jerusalem? - Beyond exceptions, it was simply great.
Walls TestimonialI would especially like to mention how fabulous our guide Rachel was. She was the perfect fit for our group. Very competent, attentive, informative and friendly. Nikki did a fabulous job cooking the food and making sure we were all fabulously comfortable on our arrivals and during our stay. Camping at Wild Dog Creek was excellent. Food was so good!
