NSW Black Dog Riders finish epic journey to Darwin

More than 320 participants, including 27 volunteers have safely arrived home after an unbelievable adventure across rural Australia to raise awareness of suicide prevention and mental health.

The NSW leg of the Black Dog Ride Dubbo to Darwin trip kicked off in August and saw the riders and pillions travel over 2,000,000 kilometres.

A total of 87 bikes rolled out of Dubbo under Police escort. They finished up eight days later in Darwin.

They stopped in Coonamble and spoke with High School Students and at Lightning Ridge they received a very generous donation from local female bowlers.

At Roma riders shared why the were there and NSW co-ordinator Wayne Amor said there wouldn't have been a dry eye in the house after three riders shared their own or a family members' story of mental health.

The longest riding day was during day five to Camooweal, where they rode approximately 660km.

Next major outing was at Katherine, where the NSW riders met up with many of the other states the next day.

The next morning riders finally got on the road in four groups of about 80 riders to head to Darwin.

Riders had a Welcome to Country and informal cocktail party at the resort where the majority of the riders were staying and a final dinner at Crocosaurus Cove.

Afterwards it was time to make the trip back to their respective homes.
