Holiday dialysis with the Big Red Kidney Bus

The Big Red Kidney Bus makes it possible for people on haemodialysis to enjoy a much-needed holiday.

COVID update


Kidney Health Australia and Monash Health have made the decision to cancel the Lakes Entrance destination that was scheduled from 19 July – 14 August.

The safety of our Bus users and nursing staff during this current COVID-19 outbreak is our top priority.

We hope to welcome all patients to the Bus in Torquay pending further easing of restrictions and health advice.

We are contacting everyone who had bookings at Lakes Entrances to inform them of the cancellation.

Regrettably, the New South Wales Bus remains off the road.

We will continue to work with our partners at Royal North Shore Hospital and advise if and when the service can resume there. In the meantime, we are working on a shiny new bus for NSW which we anticipate will be ready by the end of the year.

Making long awaited holidays happen

“Planning is a big part of travelling whilst on dialysis and using the Big Red Kidney Bus makes planning for trips so much easier. It is so simple to go online to see the bus locations and to book through the Kidney Health Australia website. I can’t express enough how great this facility is! The staff are excellent and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and even introduce you to fellow Bus users." - Stephen
