Geocache Description:

This cache is one of a series which form Geo-Art in the shape of the island of Tasmania.


Savage River is a small Australian mining township located on the west coast of Tasmania. It is a mining town created specifically to house the workers from the Savage River Mine. Government surveyor Charles Sprent discovered Savage River's iron ore deposits in 1877, however the minerals were left untouched for nearly a century due to the difficulty in extracting iron from the low-quality ore. Several surveys were conducted in the interim including one in 1926 by Australian Iron and Steel (later BHP).

The township at Savage River was constructed from 1965 to 1967 when Roy Hudson's Industrial and Mining Investigations Pty Ltd received backing to construct a mining project in the area. Given the remoteness of the operation it is surprising that little can be found about the worker’s conditions. One would have imagined at least the construction of a bar with such things as Dart Boards and Pool Tables.
