Driving change for kids in need

Red Dust Adventures

6 April - 15 April 2025

The Variety Brats Bash is all about family! The event enables families to experience many wonderful and exciting places, all the while raising much needed funds for Variety - the Children's Charity.

Dubbed the ‘Brats’ Bash because it comes and goes with plenty of little tackers in tow, the best part is getting to see kids helping kids. Fundraise with your family and teach your kids how good it feels to give to those in need all in the comfort of the family SUV or 4WD.
