Thirteen fun themed cars and over 50 FUNdraisers will be travelling through Jindabyne, Myrtleford and Mount Buller in a colourful convoy on the Variety Brat’s Bash.

After a raucous departure from Diamond Valley, the Brats will head north to Lake Hume via Beechworth, through Gundagai to Canberra where they will attend a very special afternoon tea at Government House. Heading home, the Brats take a trip down the coast to Merimbula before heading inland through Mt Buller and the North East of Victoria. Along the way, the children enjoy fun and unique activities such as visiting dinosaur museums, caves and even the Australian Institute of Sport!

Now in its 12th year, this unique FUNdraising event gives entrants of the famous Variety Bash the opportunity to take their family on an incredible adventure all while raising funds for Variety – the Children’s Charity. This unique journey provides families with children and teenagers an irreplaceable experience to spend eight days of quality time exploring some great places around our country. Like all Variety events, the Brats Bash raises much needed funds for children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs in Victoria.

Each year, entrants of the Variety Brats Bash encourage our younger generations to experience the joy of giving, passing on the baton of philanthropy.

Since its inception, the Variety Brat’s Bash has raised over $250,000 for kids who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs.
