IT may have sounded like the world was coming to an end - but the deafening rumble of hundreds of motorbikes roaring out of Moonee on Saturday was all for a good cause.
Despite the less-than-ideal weather conditions, hundreds of Coffs Coast motorcycle enthusiasts jumped on their machines for the annual Salvation Army Toy Run.
Police halted highway traffic out of the Moonee Tavern to let the convoy make their journey to the Jetty Foreshores at 12noon.
Loaded with toys to help The Salvation Army make Christmas a little bit brighter for disadvantaged children, the convoy was full of bikes of all shapes and sizes - and right in the midst of the action was Coffs Harbour mayor Keith Rhoades and Member for Cowper Luke Hartsuyker.
Hailing the day a success, the fleet ended the trip at Jetty Foreshores where they enjoyed a barbecue put on by The Salvation Army.
