Variety B to B Bash is happening 7 – 16 August with an optional Mini Bash 17 – 20 August 2022!
The Variety Brydens Lawyers Bungarribee to Bakers Creek Bash is not a race or a rally, it’s a drive in the Outback with 300 new mates. The original Aussie motoring event takes Bashers all around this beautiful country, exploring dirt roads, bush tracks and visiting parts of Australia most people never get to see.
We visit schools along the way and donate much-needed items and equipment so you can see how your hard work and fundraising is making a difference.

After too long off the dirt this year we’ve also added in a Mini Bash the Bakers Creek to Broadwater Bash which picks up where the Bungarribee to Bakers Creek Bash wraps in Mackay. The Mini Bash is an extra few days on the road with your mates and is an optional extension to your Bash adventure.

Thursday 18 August: Emerald to Miles
Friday 19 August: Miles to Broadwater – Free Night
Saturday 20 August: Free Day. Dinner at Sea World
