Sea Lake Mallee Rally

Until recently, the Sea Lake Mallee Rally was the oldest currently running off road event in Australia. The track, 7 km north of Sea Lake, runs around Lake Tyrrell (the second largest salt lake in Victoria) and is 85 km long.  The competitors endeavoured to complete four laps of this gruelling track (five for National status competitors).

The challenge lies in the way in which the surface of the track varies, from high-speed grass to sand, salt and clay, not to mention the numerous gates and trees that the competitors must navigate to finish.

The Mallee Rally was held annually during the Queen's Birthday long weekend in June. It started with the Friday Night Spectacular at the Sea Lake Recreation Reserve consisting of live band, jumping castle, merry-go-round, a static display of off-road vehicles and fireworks.

On Saturday the event moved out to the track (travel north on the Robinvale Road), for the prologue (time trials) and a 'dash for cash'.

Sunday was race day –  four or five laps of grueling racing around the 85 km track!

The event is run by the Sea Lake Off Road Club Inc .
