The Bash began in SA in 1989 and has seen Bashers travel through much of our beautiful country during this time. Variety the children’s charity SA is a professionally run, international organisation dedicated to inspiring hope and enriching the lives of children in need under the age of 18. The SA Variety Bash is a chance for the people involved in raising this money to go bush in bash cars and visit remote communities and towns, spreading the word and letting their hair down in reward for the year fundraising. There are presentations to communities and individuals along the way, and visits to schools and stations.
