SA Variety Bash 2019 – Mawson Lakes to Murray Bridge
The 2019 SA Variety Bash will be departing from Codan (Mawson Lakes) on Saturday 10 August and finishing eight days later on 17 August in Murray Bridge. On this year’s event, the entrants will be taken on numerous interesting tracks and through many private properties, seeing parts of our countryside that many people would never have the opportunity to experience.
During the event there are various trophies awarded to encourage fundraising, fun themes, fun for the kids and overall fun – the ultimate winners of the Bash are the kids in need with proceeds raised for Variety – The Children’s Charity.
As the only motoring event in Australia that supports kids in need on the road, they are always focused on raising money during the lead up to the event, but they also find it important to be stopping along the way to surprise schools and organisations with grants from your fundraising.
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!
