May/Aug/Oct 2015: Variety Trekkies Head To Fraser Island

The Variety Bash started in 1985 when entrepreneur, Dick Smith, took a group of intrepid explorers from Bourke to Burketown in old cars... raising money along the way.  Over the years, the bashes have become legendary raising vital funds for sick, disadvantaged and special needs children... and they're headed to Fraser

Thirty years on and the spirit of the original bash remains.  It's not a race or a rally. Every entrant has to raise funds for Variety - the children's charity and all vehicles must be 30 years old or more at the time of entry... of course a bit of lycra, a lick of paint and a crazy costume also go a long way.

The teams at Kingfisher Bay Resort, Eurong Beach Resort and Fraser Island Barges have long been supporters of the amazing work the team at Variety and their clubbies do... and we're over the moon to have clubs from Queensland and Victoria join us on the world's largest sand island at the end of their respective rallies.

You can do your bit to help the rally tally - if you see them on Fraser Island, on our ferries or around the resorts - please dig deep for this very worthy charity.
