The Walls of Jerusalem National Park is not accessible via road. Bushwalkers must walk up into the park from the car park located off the gravel Mersey Forest Road near Lake Rowallen. The car park is reached by following the Mersey Forest Road to Lake Rowallen, 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. 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 minimal impact guidelines. The region is an alpine wilderness dominated by dolerite peaks and alpine vegetation. The Walls of Jerusalem National Park is very exposed to the extremes of Tasmania’s changeable weather.
