SA Variety Bash | Adelaide to Port Lincoln | 11-18 Aug 2018

SA Variety Bash 2018 – Adelaide to Port Lincoln

2018 celebrates the 30th anniversary of the SA Bash, departing from Adelaide on Saturday 11 August 2018 and finishing eight days later on 18 August 2018 in Port Lincoln.

The Variety Bash was created in 1985 by adventurer Dick Smith when he took a group of friends for a drive he called ‘The Bourke to Burketown Bash’.  The Bash is generally an eight day drive in the country with your mates. It is NOT a race or rally, it is a madcap event designed to put the fun into fundraising.

Vehicles must be in standard condition with a minimum age of 25 years. The drivers and crews, however, are anything but standard issue with most Bashers following the one major rule – don’t take it seriously and have fun!

The Bash is the entrant’s reward for a year spent fundraising for the children of SA who really need it.  The Bash today has not changed from its original concept. It began in SA in 1989 and has seen Bashers travel through much of our beautiful country during this time, raising money for Variety, the Children’s Charity.

On this year’s event, the entrants will be taken on numerous interesting tracks and through many private properties seeing parts of our country that many people would never have the opportunity to experience.
