Hi
Does anyone know if there is a water tank at Dixons Kingdom at Walls of Jerusalem?

Thanks

There is a water tank at Wild Dog but not at Dixon’s Kingdom
At Dixon’s just head up the hill on the way to Mt Jerusalem and there are streams running down to collect water from

I just go a fair way up the hill to avoid any contamination by people!

That's it right... I go a fair way uphill and filter when collecting water- there is a bit of toilet paper scattered about not far off the trail and the area takes a hammering numbers wise with campers at certain times of the year.

I have never filtered water there or anywhere in the Walls and never had an issue. I would steer well clear of collecting anywhere near camps or toilet paper!

There is a toilet at Dixon’s so people should have no excuse
