About the Variety Bash
Often imitated, never bettered...
The Variety Bash is Australia's longest running and most iconic charity motoring event. Each year, the Variety Bash sees hundreds fundraise and hit the road for kids in need. Known for it's flare and fanfare, it's always a sight to behold when the Variety Bash comes to town!
The Variety Bash is typically a 10-12 day event that takes participants across the country in a colourful convoy. The route is always jam-packed with iconic Aussie tourist destinations, offroad adventures and include stops at schools and small towns to show some love along the way.
In addition to the grants presented along the way, the Variety Bash is welcomed by regional communities as the spending on fuel, food and tourism often results in their biggest trading days of the year. Sometimes, our outrageous crew even outnumber the locals for a night!
With each car required to be at least 30 years old and decked out in a unique theme, there's colourful costumes and cars as far as the eye can see.
To participate in the event, entrants fundraise in preparation for the August adventure. Then, when the time comes they get to see their fundraising dollars being put to good use through the provision of grants, scholarships and assitance that is presented to kids and communities along the way.
All funds raised through the Variety Bash go to Variety - the Children's Charity. The event is run FOR the charity, by the charity.
