The Bash is not a race or rally and speed is not important. What really matters is that everyone has an enjoyable time travelling in parts of Australia that they would not normally see, at the same time raising money for special needs children.

The Bash was originated by businessman, explorer and philanthropist Dick Smith in June 1985 when he organised a group of people to travel from Sydney to Bourke in far west NSW and from there to Burketown in far north Queensland.

Dick wanted to take a few mates for a drive in the outback in old cars while at the same time raising money for charity.
He charged everyone to enter, and entrants were able to bribe officials or be fined.

That first event raised $250,000 for charity and was known as the Bourke to Burketown Bash.

The annual Variety Bash is Australia's most successful charity motoring event. It is the focal point of fund raising efforts by many hundreds of supporters of Variety, with the money raised helping ill, special needs and disadvantaged children.

Since the original Burke to Burketown Bash was completed back in 1985, the Bash has travelled thousands upon thousands of kilometers criss crossing Australia. This unique FUN fundraising event is tagged.......

About the 2015 Bash

We are off into the Aussie Outback once again!
This time we will be travelling through iconic towns and places along the Great Australian Bight.
The route will take us along dirt roads where (I assume) the cars will be again, put to the test under rough and hot conditions.

There will be plenty of dust and at least a three camp out nights
The Bash will depart Bass Hill on the 2nd of August and will run for 9 days in total finishing at Bunbury WA on the 11th of August. There is a second leg of the Bash that will continue up to Broome, however, due to time constraints, we will be unable to continue on the the second leg.

This will no doubt be a hot, dusty and rough trek through the Outback - just the way we like it!
