The Variety 4WD Adventure is a six day, Turn Key adventure taking four wheel drive vehicles off the bitumen and onto bush tracks, sand dunes, fire trails and country dirt roads. Escape the nine-to-five routine with this premier, boutique event doing four wheel driving and accommodation in style. The emphasis is on good tracks, fabulous scenery, exceptional food, wine and of course, as with all Variety events, fun and entertainment – all while raising funds for children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs.

Where are we going?


In 2018 we are taking off from the NSW mining town of Cobar for our Variety Sulphur to Silver 4WD Adventure!
Day 1. Through the lovely village of Louth before crossing the famous Darling River. The track continues to Wanaaring for lunch and then into one of the hottest towns in NSW, Tibooburra for dinner.
Day 2. Sees us heading through Sturt National Park and onto Innamincka for a special dinner.
Day 3. We’ll visit the famed explorer, Robert O’Hara Burke’s grave site and the famous ‘Dig Tree.’ After that we will head to probably one of Australia’s most famous Outback towns – Birdsville.
Day 4. We are off to the local school for breakfast with the kids before hitting the renowned sand mountain, Big Red! We are then heading to the Birdsville Track which will lead us to Mungerannie Road House for lunch. Then it’s a short afternoon run to Marree and the site of Australia’s first Mosque.
Day 5. We are off on a special 4WD track never been used before by Variety as we pass over the Willouran Range and witness its many ruins. Now we have the fabulous Flinders Ranges in our sights. Our overnight location is at the Wilpena Pound Resort where we are going ‘Glamping’ for dinner.
Day 6. Sees us leaving the Ranges before heading up hill to Broken Hill on the last of our 2,647 Adventurous kilometres and our final night of the Adventure! We are going ‘old world charmer’ at the ‘Hill’ so polish up the ‘spats’ for the Black Tie Dinner finale!
