About the Variety Brats Bash

The Variety Brats Bash is a 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 and illness or experiencing disadvantage through the provision of tangible equipment, programs, scholarhsips and events.  

The Variety Brats Bash is all 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 in need. 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 the Brats Bash!

The Variety Brats Bash is open to all and excitedly welcomes newcomers.
