The Kelly Story

The Flinders Ranges

The Kelly head office is located on the family farm, 10km south of Booleroo Centre in the northern agricultural region of South Australia. Nestled in the foothills of the rugged and picturesque Flinders Ranges, Booleroo Centre hosts a number of agricultural machinery producers, importers and resellers.

The Southern Flinders Ranges is a recognised producer of high-quality goods, from organic fruit to fine wine. Premium wheat, malt barley, wool, forestry, horticulture and seafood combined with spectacular scenery and genuine people make this area a pleasure to live in and visit.

The Kelly family connection with Booleroo Centre stretches back to 1875, when their forefathers settled on the farm where our factory now stands.


Hardship breeds innovation – especially in agriculture. The Kelly family have farmed the harsh red soils of South Australia’s Flinders Ranges since 1875, relying on innovative ideas to get the best from the land.

Generations of agricultural innovation culminated in the KELLY Disc Chain; a unique shallow tillage implement designed to manage crop stubble. This product of necessity grew into a farming business with strong values. KELLY believes in servicing its customers well, caring for its staff and ensuring that its products contribute to sustainable agriculture, both economically and environmentally.

Today, farmers on every continent use KELLY equipment to manage residue, control weeds, and prepare an ideal seedbed for planting. With an earned reputation for quality, durability and efficiency, the minimal operating costs of running a KELLY Tillage System make it the first tool of choice for forward-thinking farmers around the world.
