In August 2022,
as the culmination of our yearly fundraising effort for Variety - Car11 Apollo
11 will be making the giant trek from Melbourne to Cairns, the long
way, via Birdsville.
After our epic, award winning, 2019 journey from Melbourne to Geraldton WA (5100km), we are again excited to help raise funds for Variety -The Children’s Charity, supporting disadvantage Aussie kids. Please note, all money raised goes directly to Variety and is tax-deductible. We are joining other Variety Bash crews in what we know will be a life changing experience for the towns we visit, the children and ourselves.
In 2022, the Car 11 - Apollo 11 Crew consists of Glen Burgin, Shane Jenkins, Mick Belcher and Paul Menzies.
On Wednesday October 6, 2021, Variety announced that despite not being able to go on the road due to COVID restrictions, the 2021 Variety Vic Bash raised a whopping… $1.2 MILLION!
We would like to congratulate each and every person who played a part in making this possible. From entrants, to officials, donors, supporters and volunteers – THANK YOU for your outstanding contributions!
Hopefully the dramatic impact of COVID-19 on our event over the last 2 years, is now behind us.
In 2021, Car 11 – Apollo 11 raised $11,000.
We could not have achieved our fundraising targets in 2018, 2019 and 2021 without the incredible generosity from our supporters and sponsor networks.
We would like to recognize and thank our most recent major sponsors.

A message from Variety:
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 – please donate today!
Thank you to our Sponsors
