Natalie Williams and her husband Derrick have been able to travel throughout the country despite Ms Williams kidney disease.
Three times a week for four hours, Mrs Williams needs dialysis.
But thanks to the Big Red Kidney Bus, the Reservoir couple can travel and is currently visiting Warrnambool.
"We've been following the bus around for our holidays for almost six years and we've been to four different places this year alone," Mrs Williams said.
"I think we've been to about a dozen locations altogether. We've seen so much of the country and met so many new people.
"Without the bus, while I can still travel, it is very hard to get bookings with other hospitals."
It's the couple's first-time to the south-west and they plan to continue using the Big Red Kidney Bus for years to come.
"It's a great idea," Mrs Williams said.
"We can travel, I can have my dialysis and we're still on holidays.
"After dialysis we still have half a day to explore the local area.
"I always recommend the bus to other patients back home."
The Big Red Kidney Bus is equipped with three chairs and can treat up to six patients a week for their regular dialysis treatment.
In partnership with Monash Health, the bus has capacity to provide over 1,000 dialysis treatments a year under the expert care of the Monash Health dialysis team.
Faye Palmer has been a nurse on the Victorian Big Red Kidney Bus for four years and believes more patients need to use the bus.
"I time my annual leave to come out and work on the bus and that way I get a working holiday," she said.
"It's fantastic for patients to have a holiday and get away from their dialysis units and for some it's their only chance to get away, meet new people and see new things.
"Some people get set in their routines and are scared to break them but once they do, they always have a really great time."
Kidney Health Australia chief executive Chris Forbes said the bus has been operating in Victoria since 2014 and has been popular for many people suffering from kidney disease.
"It's a lifeline for patients on dialysis as it can be almost impossible for them to take holidays," he said.
"Many patients won't get a transplant so they depend on dialysis."
Kidney disease is a silent killer where sufferers can lose up to 90 per cent of their kidney function without experiencing any symptoms.
One in three Australians are at risk of developing chronic kidney disease.
"Many people don't get symptoms until it's too late," Mr Forbes said.
"We've had lots of our patients say they really encourage people to go to their doctors for a check."
The bus will be located at the NRMA Warrnambool Riverside Holiday Park until December 14.
The Big Red Kidney Bus is funded through donations which can be made through kidney.org.au/bus
