A nature's paradise begging to be explored
In the picturesque World Heritage Barrington Tops National Park, a dense protected temperate ‎and subtropical rainforest awaits to be explored...‎

The tall ancient trees towering over the walking trail.


The remote and revitalising walk at the Jerusalem Creek Trail is a perfect ‎nature break that must be visited. It is definitely a true nature experience with calls of the wompoo fruit- dove echoing through the towering tallowwoods and majestic ‎Sydney blue gums, the sound of a piping whistle of the eastern yellow robin through ‎the canopy and a cool slight breeze running through your hair with the smell of rich dense rainforest ‎lingering the air.

Unfortunately, when we visited it was low rainfall and the creek was dried up, nonetheless, it was still a breathtaking view of surrounding bushland.


With the pure beauty of rainforest, this medium 2km (approximately 1hr, one way walk) is a ‎nature's paradise and a bird enthusiasts dream. ‎

Jerusalem Creek Trail welcomes you to a rare experience of splendour of subtropical rainforest, ‎passing waterfalls and creeks, towering trees, wildlife and birdlife spotting, a remote picnic spot ‎where blue gums and turpentine surrounds the sheltered picnic tables, all making this walking trail ‎truly an experience not to be forgotten.‎

One of the waterholes we spotted at the viewing point.


This protected wilderness is home to a wide range of plants and animals, including more than fifty ‎rare or threatened species, making it a haven for bird enthusiasts and nature lovers. ‎
Be sure to add this lovely walk to the bucket list!‎

The start of this breathtaking walk.


The walking trail begins at Wangat Rd and finishes at the Jerusalem Creek Park, do take care as ‎some parts of this walk can become slippery. ‎

There are BBQ, picnic tables and toilet facilities on site. ‎

Parking is available at Jerusalem Creek Picnic Area. ‎
