Peter Mulhall

YOUNG truckie Peter Mulhall works for Townsville-based Direct Freight Express, delivering goods around the north Queensland capital.

The 26-year-old Peter drives a 2009 Isuzu and Big Rigs spotted him delivering gym equipment on April 4 to a suburban house owned by a local policeman.

"I like the job and my boss Glen is great. Lately I have been carrying lots of this type of fitness equipment," he said.

Peter said he grew up in Darwin and Katherine in the NT and has lived in Townsville for the past five years.

Living at idyllic Toolakea Beach just north of Townsville, Peter partakes in his favourite recreation, fishing.

Down the track Peter hopes to drive heavier trucks.
