Savage River National Park

Savage River National Park in Tasmania's north-west is a wilderness region containing the largest single area of cool temperate rainforest surviving in Australia and is one of the few remaining temperate wilderness areas left on Earth.

Unlike other national parks in Tasmania, Savage River National Park remains inaccessible with no facilities, roads or mechanised access to the park. However, the park is surrounded by the Savage River Regional Reserve in which a number of rough 4WD tracks provide limited access.

There are several State Forest Reserves to the north of the Savage River Regional Reserve that can be accessed by standard vehicles. They offer an insight into the magnificent rainforest ecosystem that lies within the Savage River National Park.
