Mallee Rally Organisation

The Sea Lake Off Road Club took over the organising and promotion of the Sea Lake Mallee Rally in 1987 and, through a down-to-earth approach, hard work and dedication, saw this unique event become a success.

The committee is comprised of primarily local off-road competitors and their families. With their expertise and understanding of the needs of the participants, they were able to host this exciting rally on an annual basis, drawing competitors from all over Australia. The committee not only organised this event, but many of its members also competed.

This committee organised the event from scratch, not only the required paperwork for the competitors but toilets, chairs, marquees, hundreds of volunteers, bunting, radios, radio operators, starters, commentators, timekeepers and CAMS (Confederation of Australian Motor Sport) officials.  In addition to all this, the local businesses and landowners banded together with their tractors, graders, fire trucks, steel posts and, of course, their invaluable time to mark and maintain the track.

The Sea Lake Off Road Club also worked together, in a strong partnership with Parks Victoria, to ensure that the shores of Lake Tyrrell were preserved.  Every second year a scenic drive was conducted around the Lake with a 22-seater bus filled to capacity and approximately thirty 4WD vehicles tagging along behind.  This Scenic Drive aimed to ensure that the shores of Lake Tyrrell were only used with the knowledge and cooperation of Parks Victoria, whilst providing an insight into this fantastic natural environment.
