Peter Kelly from Murray Offroad Adventures has a deep understanding and a vast knowledge of this northwest corner of Victoria.
Peter grew up on a local Mallee farm, with his passion and knowledge of the area. His early years involved exploring this diverse landscape, shearing sheep, driving tractors and mustering stock on horseback between the Sunset Country through to the Murray River.
Peter's experience spans over 30 years of working on major projects with Landcare, forest management, emergency services (fire and flood) and the development of techniques to create flooding in modified landscapes and salinity control.
His work includes working with the indigenous and broader communities involving implementing some major advances in managing public and private landscapes in the Mallee to preserve our heritage, both indigenous and non-indigenous.
Murray Offroad Adventures provide tours of this area of Victoria.
