​​​The Parks and Wildlife Service (PWS) invited public submissions on the Walls of Jerusalem Recreation Zone Plan Implementation Project. The project has been managed by PWS including the design, construction and ongoing operation. The environmental assessment and project planning addressed statutory requirements including the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area Management Plan 2016. 

The purpose of the public consultation was to finalise the design of the project and the environmental assessment for the Reserve Activity Assessment (RAA) before commencing construction in 2020.

This project aimed to build infrastructure to protect the Parks’ sensitive vegetation communities while providing an improved recreational experience for visitors.

The RAA and supporting documents describe the development proposal to improve management of the site. The proposal included consolidating the three major campsites at Wild Dog Creek, Dixons Kingdom and Lake Adelaide and provide improved facilities. 

Sections of the circuit loop walking track of Wild Dog Creek – Dixons Kingdom – Lake Adelaide will also be upgraded to provide a safe multiday circuit walk.
