The Savage River National Park was created as part of the Regional Forestry Agreement on 30th of April 1999 by the Government of Tasmania to allow natural processes to continue undisturbed and for the protection of relict populations of fauna and flora of great antiquity.
Unlike other National Parks, Savage River National Park remains inaccessible to the public, consequently visitors will find there are no recreational facilities or developments inside the reserve. In keeping with its wilderness character there are no facilities, roads or mechanized 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.
Savage River National Park comprises approximately 5% of the greater Tarkine area and is a habitat rich in Tasmania's Apex predator, and the Tasmanian Tiger snake. The Park is also quite heavily leech infested.
