Adelaide to Port Lincoln
2018 celebrates the 30th anniversary of the SA Bash, departing from Adelaide on Saturday 11 August and finishing eight days later on 18 August in Port Lincoln.
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.
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 children in need.
As the only motoring event in Australia that supports kids in need on the road, we are always focused on not only raising money during the lead up and throughout the event, but we also find it important to be stopping along the way to surprise schools and organisations with grants from YOUR fundraising!
WHAT IS THE BASH:
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 and shall be models 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.
Last year’s SA Variety Bash raised an astonishing $2.54 million (net). Over the past 29 years, the SA Bash alone has raised in excess of $39 million (net) for South Australian children who are sick, disadvantaged or live with special needs!
