Sydney Savage Club is, or was, a social club in Sydney, Australia, associated with the London Savage Club, named after the poet, Richard Savage, and was formed to bring together literary men connected with literature, the arts, sport or science. The first iteration of the Sydney club was founded in the 1880s as a meeting-place for artists and writers. Its meetings were called “corroborees”. The club disbanded sometime in the 19th-century.
