Unprecedented events in 2020 have impacted all of us. Variety Vic Bash is no exception, with a 12 month delay announced.

So in August 2021 – Car11 Apollo 11 will be making the trek from Melbourne to Great Keppel Island – the long way – via Birdsville. After our epic 2019 journey from Melbourne to Geraldton WA (5100km), we can’t wait to participate again in raising funds for Variety and joining the other Bash crews in a great life experience, where everyone wins, especially disadvantaged Aussie kids. Last year the Variety Bash raised a record $1.8M, which we hope to break again in 2021. We can only do this with your support. It is truly appreciated.   

The Variety Bash is a once in a lifetime chance to experience remote and regional parts of Australia in outrageously themed classic cars (eg our 1988 Mercedes 300SEL), all in support of Variety – the Children’s Charity.

Throughout the event, we’ll be visiting local towns, stopping into schools and organisations to help kids who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs through the provision of educational, health and mobility equipment. And the giving doesn’t stop there! Variety continue to support children, families and communities throughout the year with funds raised from the Variety Bash.

Help us give Aussie kids a fair go – donate today!

COVID - Bash Update - Postponed till 2021

Tuesday 30th Jun

Following the recent Federal and State Government announcements, the decision has been made to postpone the 2020 Variety Victoria Bash in August 2020 to August 2021. The route, stops, final destination and duration will remain the same.

We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank everyone who has contributed to the planning and development of the 2020 Variety Bash and are delighted that all the hard work and generosity of spirit will come to fruition,  just 12 months later in the 2021 Variety Bash (11-20 August 2021).

The Variety Motoring Team have been working hard with the local community to work out the ways in which we can help and provide support in the medium to long term.

Our donations to fire affected areas were presented on Saturday to Bruthen Primary School and on Sunday to Mallacoota P-12 College. Donations consisted of laptops, sports equipment, bikes, books and games. 

Thank you all for your generous support. Variety quickly raised over $11,000, to purchase these laptops, along with receiving other donations from our wider support community.

Team Car 11 Apollo 11 witnessed some of the aftermath of the East Gippsland fires. For hundreds of Kms, work continues today on the cleanup, all the way down to Mallacoota and beyond. Glad we were able to help in some way.

Thanks again for all your support.
