The Variety B to B Bash 2024 is happening August 11 – 22!
Join us for the 40th Anniversary of the iconic Variety B to B Bash – Bash’s Billabong to Bombira
The Bash is an outback adventure like no other. Explore remote and regional areas while raising funds for kids in need and making a genuine difference in the lives of Australian families.
In this momentous 40th year we begin at Bash’s Billabong in the heart of Dubbo’s Taronga Western Plains Zoo. Then stepping into the original 1985 Basher’s tracks, we follow along their route from Bourke to Burketown, stopping at beautiful towns along the way. From Bourke to Charleville, Windorah to Birdsville, Mount Isa to Burketown, no stones will go unturned in recreating the original journey.
Our motoring events give you the chance to explore country towns that aren’t always on the map. What we hear consistently from our participants is that they join for the adventure, but the highlight is experiencing first-hand the impact their fundraising can make on the lives of kids in rural and remote communities.
