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, has seen this unique event move successfully to what it is today.

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 have been able to host this exciting rally on an annual basis, drawing competitors from all over Australia. The committee not only organises this event, but many of its members also compete.

This committee organises 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 band together with their tractors, graders, fire trucks, steel posts and, of course, their invaluable time to mark and maintain the track.

Not only does the Sea Lake Off Road Club organise the Sea Lake Mallee Rally but members band together, in a strong partnership with Parks Victoria, to ensure that the shores of Lake Tyrrell are preserved.  Every second year a scenic drive is conducted around the Lake with a 22-seater bus filled to capacity and approximately thirty 4WD vehicles tagging along behind.  This Scenic Drive aims to ensure that the shores of Lake Tyrrell are only used with the knowledge and cooperation of Parks Victoria, whilst providing an insight into this fantastic natural environment.
