Variety NSW Bash

In 2017 we celebrated the 26th anniversary of the Variety NSW Bash with around 250 people taking part in the quarter century anniversary event in May. More than $800,000 was raised for local children who are sick, disadvantaged or who have special needs. We can’t wait for the 2018 NSW Bash!

The Variety Bash is not a race or a rally. It’s an adventure with mates driving pre 1976 cars through regional parts of NSW that you might otherwise not see, all in support of Variety – the Children’s Charity. The Variety NSW Bash starts and ends in Newcastle over a week, making the journey to and from the Bash more manageable.

The Bash is for those with a sense of humour and adventure, who love cars and don’t mind getting a little dirty, and most importantly those who want to help make a difference to the lives of Aussie kids in need.

Event Details

The Variety NSW Bash sets off from Newcastle for a seven day adventure through regional NSW with a new route each year. Along the way we’ll be visiting rural towns and schools where you can see the efforts of your fundraising first-hand.

You can expect dirt roads, creek crossings, bush, beaches, fun, entertainment and many new memories on the Bash.


Entrants aka. ‘Bashers’ must raise a minimum of $4,000 per car for Variety – the Children’s Charity to enter the Variety NSW Bash. The Bash is a celebration of a year’s fundraising to help Aussie kids in need. Bashers get to see the direct impact of their fundraising efforts along the way, with a range of educational, health and mobility equipment provided local schools and organisations enroute.
