About Us

When you “go bush” with the Beyond Bitumen Rally with Peter & Trish Fehon you will have a heap of fun, but not at the expense of safety. We make sure that things are done safely, so that everyone enjoys the experience.

We have experienced mechanics that volunteer their time to make sure you get to your daily destination. We also have a camera crew and a medical team.

We have a comprehensive set of safety rules that are based on a common sense approach to life.
It’s all about fun and fundraising in a safe and controlled environment. Our easy to use App ensures you always know what is happening on the event, without having to ask one of the officials.

Beth Maree Fehon

07/05/1988 – 12/02/2005

Many people know our personal story, and understand why we support Beyond Blue, but some people may not. Below is the story of our daughter, Beth, who succumbed to depression in 2005.
Beth was a very shy child, she took a while to warm to people and the environment she was in. She didn’t want to go to pre-school so her younger brother Jake agreed to go with her. Once she started school she gradually came out of her shell, but she was still basically shy. Even in high school she would send Jake to the canteen for her. Most people didn’t see this side of Beth, to all her friends and teachers she was an outgoing popular girl.

She had a way of making us smile, she had a very happy cheery attitude that she portrayed to the world. Our happiest memory of her is her sliding down the hallway in her socks, stopping at the end to make some funny comment. She was our joker and our bright shining light.

When she took her own life in February 2005 our world changed forever. In fact it felt like it stopped for a long time. What followed was months of desperate searching for an answer to that elusive unanswerable question – why? That question was never answered and no doubt never will. We have come to the conclusion that there is no answer. Probably Beth didn’t even really know why.

Depression is an illness and all too often it’s fatal.

What got us through this? Our faith in God. A favourite bible passage of ours is Hebrews 11 v1 “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” 

Now many years later we are once again “happy” but we still miss our darling girl every day. But we know that our time in this world is just a speck compared to eternity with God (and Beth).
