Peter Kelly has a deep understanding and a vast knowledge of the Murray River landscape between Mildura and the South Australian border, in the northwest corner of Victoria.
Having grown up on the last of the natural bushland properties to be cleared for agriculture in the Millewa, Peter's family farm relied on wheat, sheep and cattle for survival. Early life on the farm involved exploring this diverse landscape, providing the grounding for a thorough understanding of the Millewa. Shearing sheep, countless hours driving tractors and mustering stock on horseback between the Sunset Country through to the Murray River, reinforced Peter's passion and knowledge of the area.
Peter's experience spans more than 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. Peter has worked with the Murray Darling Basin Authority, Victorian, South Australian and New South Wales governments. His work with the indigenous and broader communities has involved implementing some major advances in managing public and private landscapes in the Mallee to preserve our heritage, both indigenous and non-indigenous.
