THE Big Red Kidney Bus has arrived in Sunraysia, welcoming patients from across Australia who combine travel with treatment. 

By day, the bus transforms into a mini-clinic where kidney disease patients can receive haemodialysis while enjoying a change of scenery from where they would usually have treatment.

The bus is parked at the Big 4 Mildura Getaway Holiday Park. Halfway through its six-week stay, the bus is here until  September 7, before heading to Warrnambool.
