Lawn mower cuts a path to Bendigo

A RIDE-ON lawn mower will continue its 15,000 kilometre journey today as it arrives in Bendigo.

The Hustler Super Z mower, driven by a team of 12 volunteers is part of the Ride to the Other Side fundraiser.

The fundraiser began in Perth two years ago and raises money for the EJ Whitten Foundation, Autralian Rotary Health and the Rotary Foundation's End Polio Now project.

The first leg of the tour began in 2012 when the mower travelled from Perth to Kalgoorlie.

In 2013 it travelled from Kalgoorlie to Adelaide.

This year the trip began in Adelaide on May 10 and will visit Melbourne, Hobart, Canberra and Sydney as well as many towns along the way.

The fundraiser plans to travel across Australia for six years and raise $1 million.

The Ride to the Other Side fundraiser is expected to arrive in Kangaroo Flat's Rotary Gateway Park about 4.30pm.
