THE WALKING DAYS

3 UNIQUE DAYS IN PURE TASMANIAN WILDERNESS

DAY 1 - The walk in

Carrying our backpacks into this magnificent highland area will provide us with a challenge but we will be given plenty of encouragement from our guides as well as snacks and numerous rest stops along the way.

 

Once the plateau has been reached, the walking is flat and spectacular as we pass by numerous tarns and lakes en route to our base camp for the next 3 nights. On arrival we set up camp, relax and enjoy the

amazing surrounds of the dolerite high peak of King David.

Walking Distance 7km | Walking Time 4 hours

DAY 2 - Explore the peaks

Today we head out from our camp (carrying just our day packs) passing Lake Salome and the Pool of Bethesda before reaching the imposing dolerite Gate of Damascus. An nearby area rich in stands of ancient pencil pines & lush grasslands is known as Dixon's Kingdom. The cultural heritage hut was built in the early 1930’s by Reg Dixon, a trapper of the time. 

After a short break enjoying our lush green surrounds, we head off to climb Mount Jerusalem. On a clear day the views from Mt. Jerusalem stretch across the central highlands where you will see why the area is referred to as the “Land of a Thousand Lakes”. Our return route to base camp either takes us through the Gate of the Chain or the Golden Gate. Either way spectacular sub-alpine scenery awaits.

Walking Distance 8-12km | Walking Time 6-8 hours
