Five lads from Teesside who set off on a round the world bike ride have reached Australia.
It has taken them over a year to get there and they have travelled through 25 countries on their way.
They will spend this christmas in Australia before cycling across America and back to Teesside through Europe.
So far they have raised £12,500 for local charities and are hoping to reach their target of £20,000 by the time they get home.
