Wild Dog Creek camping area (walk-in camping)
Tent sites on timber platforms beside Wild Dog Creek are reached 3 hr from the carpark, after negotiating a moderately steep and muddy track. You will need to be fully equipped and capable of sitting out extreme cold weather. You must also carry a gas/fuel stove as campfires are not allowed. The huts in the park are for emergency shelter only. From Wild Dog Creek it is a short climb to Herods Gate and Lake Salome. Bring your camera.

This campsite is located in Walls of Jerusalem National Park
This park is a pristine alpine plateau accessible only to dedicated bushwalkers. It is an unforgettably beautiful landscape of lakes and tarns, some surrounded by ancient pencil pines, others ringed by cushion plants. Scenic highlights include the pencil pine-fringed Pool of Bethesda and the delightful Dixons Kingdom Hut, which is also set in a grove of pencil pines, some over 1000 years old. Trails up to Solomons Throne and Mt Jerusalem offer stunning vistas across Tasmania’s central plateau. The park entrance is a 30 min walk from the carpark on the rocky, unsealed Fish River Rd. Turn off the Mersey Forest Rd (C171) at Lake Rowallan.
