After a whirlwind year of cancelled events it brings us much joy to be able to launch events for our Variety community once again.
One of these events is Variety Rocks 4 All, a family concert at Tumbalong Park. Our Variety families will be entertained by some of Australia’s best entertainers, cultural music acts, Variety Heart Scholarship recipient performances and some award winning country music artists.
This event was made possible thanks to the incredible generosity of City of Sydney, who granted us $50,000 to run this event through their COVID-19 Recovery CBD Activation Grant.
Through this grant, Variety is able to host an incredible day for families who have been supported through Variety offering them free of charge tickets, along with offering the community heavily discounted ticket prices for an event of this kind.
Variety aim to showcase the ease of accessibility and inclusive nature of The City of Sydney and the Darling Quarter precinct through detailed promotion of the event including, ease of access via parking and public transport, access to amenities, affordable food outlets and a family friendly experience at Tumbalong Park.
We all know taking the kids to the city can seem like a daunting task sometimes so we’ve worked hard to make the day as simple as possible for you and the kids. We’d love to have you join us.
We can’t thank City of Sydney enough for helping us to bring this event to life!

We continue to focus on reaching all kids and supporting families and communities, regardless of how remote or regional they may be. Children who are forced to travel great distances for medical appointments, educational opportunities and sporting competitions often face particular challenges and that’s where we come in – making sure that all kids can attain their full potential, regardless of their background.
New Grant Breaks Records
In early 2021, we undertook a grants review process to ensure we were providing help where help was needed. We compared our systems to those in Variety offices across the USA, Canada, UK, Ireland and throughout Australia. After analysing the results, we used the information to revamp our Kids Support framework and launch four new grants: We Move, We Join, We Care and We Learn.
