Port Lincoln's Robyn Bussenschutt is travelling more than 2000-kilometres to volunteer at the world's most remote music festival to give back to the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) that supported her family.
The 'Dunny Angel' as she is known will drive 23 hours to the Birdsville Big Red Bash in Queensland's Simpson Desert for the second year to help the sustainability and clean up team during the event.
The 60-year-old said the RFDS helped everyone in regional and rural Australia and she supported the service greatly as she knew first hand what it could do.
"I did it last year and had a ball, so many amazing experiences meeting lots of people and will be meeting quite a few volunteers there again this year."Robyn Bussenschutt
"I did it last year and had a ball, so many amazing experiences meeting lots of people and will be meeting quite a few volunteers there again this year," she said.
"My husband was flown to Adelaide back in December 2015 with severe kidney problems and leukaemia and sadly he didn't get to come home to Port Lincoln but because he was flown by RFDS we had more time with him.
"We have to keep it (RFDS) going to help others in need."
Last year the festival raised $10,000 for the RFDS by breaking the world record for the largest nutbush dance as 1719 people danced to Tina Turner's Nutbush City Limits.
The festival began working with RFDS in 2016 and has raised more than $100,000 for the service but founder and organiser Greg Donovan said they aimed to raise $100,000 alone from this year's event.
He said the festival was extremely grateful for the contribution the volunteers made each year.
"The Big Red Bash has grown quickly over the years...this growth has been possible in large part because we have around 500 volunteers each year who trek out to the event and muck in to make everything happen," he said.
"Volunteers give us the additional manpower needed to go above and beyond and to embark on extra initiatives like the charity activities we hold for the RFDS."
The three-day event from July 16 to 18 in the Queensland town Birdsville will feature live Australian music such as Midnight Oil, The Living End and Kasey Chambers, outback activities and charity initiatives for RFDS.
