The Sound Science of Seachem

From Products to Employment People graduating from college these days are finding it more challenging than ever to find a place to work, much less find a role that fits their major.  They also find it difficult to find a role in a company that is exciting, where each day is different from the next. Graduating from Emory University with degrees in Neuroscience and Behavioral Biology, I was looking for just that.  As it turns out a company in the small...

2014 Seachem Walkabout Select Dealer Award

It is time to announce the 2014 Seachem Walkabout Select Dealer Award. This award goes to the select dealer that we feel had the best flash sale during the Walkabout Tour and really went above and beyond for the Seachem Flash Sale. While every select dealer was great, there was one that just stuck out during the whole tour and that shop is Smiths Aquarium! Smiths Aquarium and their amazing staff put on quite the show for the H2GO and...

Pet City

We had a very hard time choosing where we should hold the final flash sale in the 2014 walkabout. But we unanimously decided it should be with a long-term partner who had been with Seachem from the beginning in the Australian market and with that we chose Pet City. Kim Continati the owner has always been a huge supporter and friend to Seachem. We have been truly honored to be partners with Kim and her exceptional staff especially her Aquatics...

Smiths Aquarium

Once arriving in Brisbane we are amazed by the effort put forth by the owners at Smiths Aquarium, the turn out was unbelievable to say the least. They have created a full-blown day of fun for their customers in honor of the flash sale and inshore visit of the Seachem H2Go. Complete with a blow up castle for the little ones and a cookout for all ages. I was amazed by the number of customers that turned out for...

From Mackay to Brisbane

The last leg of the Walkabout Tour began as we left Mackay heading south to Bundaberg to rest for the night before moving on to Brisbane where we will have two flash sales and close the Walkabout out with a long time partner of Seachem PetCity. The long leg from Mackay to Bundaberg was riddled with rough roads and it's share of road hazards to say the least. Once in Bundaberg we found rest and nourishment at a local favorite...

The Long Journey to Mackay

As the team left Townsville early this morning and pushed southward to Mackay we found it to be a longer drive than anticipated. Being trapped on long stretches of desolate highway behind trailers added a couple of hours to the so called four our tour. No worries mate! A quick stop at Le Sorrel, a roadside cafe for lunch proved just the thing. They ended up being an outback treasure, boasting handmade daily all things delicious. Jim and Matthew...

Townsville changing of the guard

A crisp Townsville breeze combined with hair pulling construction met Matthew and Trevor this morning during their final day together on the Seachem Walkabout. Passing the van keys (and Prime bottles) to Seachem President Doug Hill and VP of Development Jim Rogers, the duo spent the afternoon mingling with Michael Alloway - owner of Pet HQ. This large format, full line pet shop serves the community in a BIG way by offering excellent pricing and a well laid floor...

Cloncurry to Townsville

Wide open sky and a trek of 900km brought the H2Go! up close and personal today with signature Outback icons and scenery. With a course set for the Queensland coast, the team followed along the famous "Overlanders Way" - a pioneering and cattle trail leading from Tennant Creek to Townsville. During the 10 hour drive, the team paid respects to a pioneer cemetery and dropped in for a visit with a life sized Kronosaur - a prehistoric sea dwelling...

Roads of Abandonment

Today the team got a jump start on the sun and bee lined their way toward Queensland from the sparse community of Tennant Creek. Matthew, who had hoped to see local Rainbowfish swimming happily, unfortunately found a sand box during this incredibly dry season. Skirting past huge mining camps and roadside relics, the team kept ahead of the dirt clogs and dust devils to reach the friendly mining and cattle town of Cloncurry. Our hotel for the night -...

Katherine and Nitmiluk Gorge

The city of Katherine welcomed the crew of the H2Go! van for a much appreciated stop over day that proved both inspirational and educational. After disappointing news that Kakadu was a six hour round trip outside our route, it was recommended we see the local National Park - Nitmiluk Gorge. Part of the Northern Territory, these sacred aboriginal lands are now managed cooperatively and showed the true ruggedness and mystique of the area. They seemed to be a favorite as...
