Bernes Valley is inside the Walls of Jerusalem National Park and is located under the southern end of the Walls. It’s an ideal overnight walk from Thousand Lakes Lodge and will be offered as a guided walk in the near future. 

Start your journey at Ada Lagoon, then follow the Talinah Lagoon Track then onto the Lake Fanny Track into Talleh Lagoons before walking off the Great Pine Tier into the Valley. From here it’s mostly free-walking, where there are no formed tracks and you are free to explore and make your own sensitive pathways through this area of the National Park.

Bernes Valley is home to all of the ’S’ lakes - lakes Silver, Sally, Sonja and Solveig. Lake Silver is an ideal spot to set up camp for the night and also a great for a bit of polaroiding for some of the wild brown trout this region is known for. 

Exploring this region is a must for keen bushwalkers, it is remote and the wilderness landscape is breathtaking. Send us an enquiry if you would like to stay updated on when we begin the guided walk from the Lodge.
