King Davids Peak (also known as the West Wall) is a mountain in the Walls of Jerusalem National Park in Tasmania, Australia. It is the tenth-highest mountain in Tasmania.

Like other features of the park, such as Herods Gate, Lake Salome, Solomons Jewels, Damascus Gate, the Pool of Bathesda, many features are named for places and people in the Bible. The mountain is named after the biblical ruler of Judea, King David. Its alternative name – The West Wall – is named after the West Wall in Jerusalem, Israel. It is the most prominent feature of the national park, and is a popular venue with bushwalkers and mountain climbers.
