Savage River National Park

Access

In keeping with the wilderness character of the Savage River National Park, the park is remote and inaccessible and has no visitor facilities.

Limited access into the adjacent regional reserve by 4WD is possible from the east via the Murchison Highway and from the south via the Waratah-Corinna Road. However, many of these tracks, particularly those from the south, have become very overgrown. The upkeep of roads and tracks on State forest to the east of the regional reserve is the responsibility of Forestry Tasmania which maintains these roads on an “as needs basis”.

To the north west of the national park, there are a number of Forest Reserves, such as Julius River Forest Reserve and Milkshakes Hills Forest Reserve. These offer an insight into the magnificent rainforest ecosystem that lies to the southeast within the Savage River National Park. They are a part of the South Arthur Forest Drive. Full details of access and the facilities available can be found on Forestry Tasmania's web site.

If driving between dusk and dawn within the region, please be aware that you are sharing the road with wildlife.
