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