A Melbourne Dynamo just posted some photos of Dudu Leider's Mivtza Sukkah - see here for the article and more photos.

For the few who don't know him, Rabbi Dudu Leider runs the Israeli Chabad House on the corner of Carslile Street and Orange Grove. He has phenomenal success with Israeli backpackers and others who are attracted to his warm and dynamic personality.

The article from says:

The Beis Chabad for Israeli tourists in Melbourne, directed by R. Dudu Lieder, was active round-the-clock during Sukkos, giving Israeli tourists the opportunity to fulfill the mitzvos of Sukkos. R. Lieder and the temimim who are assisting him spend every moment of chol hamoed driving their mobile sukkah from house to house, benching lulav and esrog with Israelis and inviting them inside for a bite of mezonos and Leishev Basukkah. At night, the mobile sukkah became the site of a warm chassidishe farbrengen, with the shluchim explaining the significance of Sukkos as well as the time in which we find ourselves.
