Variety 4WD Adventure
River to the Rock

Important announcement regarding the
2021 Variety 4WD Adventure

Following state government announcements, interstate border closures and the recent COVID outbreak in Victoria, the 2021 Variety 4WD Adventure must be postponed. 

Together with all Victorians, Variety – the Children’s Charity are committed to protecting the health of our community and playing our part to safeguard those most vulnerable. We will be closely monitoring health advice from state governments, and will confirm a new date when it is safe to do so. The Variety team and committee will now be working hard to make new arrangements for entrants, as well as reach out to suppliers from along the route. 

We would like to thank our participants and event partners, Roof Extenda and TJM Burwood, for their dedication to Variety and children in need and their depth of understanding and ongoing support, not just in the last few weeks, but over the last two years. It’s been a long road, and there’s still a way to go, but we cannot wait to share a 4WD Adventure together.  

We’d also like to give you HUGE thanks on behalf of all the Variety kids who will benefit from their kindness, commitment, generosity and tireless fundraising efforts. We will also be working to ensure kids waiting for the bikes, laptops and resources we were due to deliver on the road are supported as soon as possible.   

Finally a MASSIVE thank you to our committee, Alun, Ben, Murray, Wayne and ably led by Corinne, who have worked tirelessly to pull together the 2020 event, the 2021 event and numerous variations. We acknowledge your frustration and disappointment and greatly appreciate your leadership, resilience and generosity. You make our world a better place.  

Stay safe and look out for each other.
