Walls Of Jerusalem is a national park in Tasmania, Australia, 144 km northwest of Hobart.The park takes its name from the geological features of the park which are though to resemble the walls of the city of Jerusalem in Israel. As a result many places and features within the park also have Biblical references for names, such as Herods Gate, Lake Salome, Solomons Jewels, Damascus Gate, the Pool of Bathesda.

The most prominent feature of the park is King Davids Peak.
