A SPECTACULAR sight greeted Wudinna Area School children when the Black Dog Ride riders roared into their school yard from Ceduna.

They revved their machines much to the pleasure of the watching children.

The riders enjoyed the morning tea provided by members of Lions Club and the broader community.

The large group assembled just outside Wudinna for their next venue at Kimba.

Hundreds of motorbike riders from around Australia are taking part in the week-long journey to meet up at the red centre of Australia.

Their aim is to raise awareness of depression and suicide prevention.

Black Dog founder Steve Andrews said fostering awareness of depression and suicide prevention in communities was the best catalyst for prevention.

So far this charity has raised more than $1.8 million for mental health services across Australia.

Last year, 65 riders and crew hit the highways for 32 days and rode more than 14,500km.

This year, riders departed from all states and territories and arrived at Uluru on August 21.
