Variety Brats Bash


The Variety Brats Bash is sister event and family-friendly alternative to the Variety Bash, designed with kids of all ages in mind. 

Get your family and friends together to share quality time and experience some of the most unique and remote areas of Australia.  

Like all Variety Motoring Events, all funds raised help children living with disability or experiencing illness, disadvantage through the provision of tangible equipment and programs.  

The Variety Brats Bash is about “kids helping kids”; along the way we stop to present grants to individuals, schools and organisations so your kids can see the direct impact they are making to children and families who may be less fortunate. These moments can be the highlight of the trip and make lifelong memories for all involved.

Costumes and themes are encouraged, along with good spirits and a thirst for adventure. We guarantee there's no other family holiday quite like it, and the impact you have on kids and communities along the way is long lasting. 

The Variety Brats Bash is open to all and excitedly welcomes newcomers or “rookies”.
