Fourteen people chipped in to buy the bus three years ago after hiring a bus for a surf trip.

They decided to lash out and buy a bus of their own, hence, Erica "the good times bus" was born.

The bus carried 35 passengers to Bendigo for the weekend's Groovin' The Moo festival.

"This is our third year coming to Groovin' The Moo," passenger Mark Silberer said.

"It's always a good weekend."

The group had their transport sorted and we were lucky enough to know someone in Bendigo who offered them space to sleep.

More than 30 people crammed into the house, with tents in the backyard, but there were no complaints, just bucket loads of fun - and lots of beer.

The group said goodbye to Bendigo on Sunday morning and promised Erica "the good times bus" would be back again next year.
