About the Bus

The Bus

The Big Red Bus is a 1961 Leyland Atlantean double-decker built in England, and now operating on the Mid North Coast of Australia. Fully refurbished as a mobile café and hangout space, it exists for the primary purpose of providing service to the community in the local Port Macquarie / Hastings area in projects that fulfil this criterion, and whose requirements suit the function and capabilities of its setup and design.

The Big Red Bus is privately owned and operated, and in serving the community is indebted to the time and resources offered by volunteers, businesses and partnering groups.


The BRB is working within the local community and several projects are under way. For more information on these projects, click on the links above. Keep your eye out for more projects to come.
