A determined James Hackney covered thousands of kilometres on his bicycle to complete his mission.
The 28-year-old travelled for 2,795km, departing from Uluru on April 18, and passing through Goulburn to reach Bondi Beach on May 3.
He travelled through the Northern Territory, South Australia, Victoria and NSW in a span of 16 days.
Mr Hackney's aim was to raise money for the not-for-profit Royal Flying Doctor Service and increase awareness regarding the lack of mental health resources available in the rural communities.
"On average, Australians living in rural communities die from suicide at twice the rate of city people, yet are only able to access mental health services at a fifth of the rate of city people. This isn't good enough," he said.
"The goal of this tour was to travel through rural communities and to bring to light the mental health issues that plague rural Australia."
He has managed to raise $22,000 worth of funds, exceeding the initial goal of $10,000.

Mr Hackney spent a considerable amount of time in rural NSW and that was an enriching experience for him.
"For me, this was an opportunity to give something back to rural Australia and thank them for learning the lessons that I did," he added.
"During my time there, I witnessed a lot of very high-stress situations, especially in the farming community while farmers waited for the rain.
He covered around 160-250km on a daily basis and started conversations with inhabitants of rural towns to understand the mental health plight.
