The iconic Yamaha Variety Jet Trek is Australia’s largest and most successful charity personal watercraft (PWC) event, taking place annually for the last 20 years. It’s an adrenaline-packed adventure, travelling via some of the most amazing coastline and scenery Australia has to offer. Since inception, Trekkers have raised over $1.8 million to give more Aussie kids a fair go.
You’ll experience an action-packed and fun-fuelled week as you take in sensational scenery and meet the kids and families you’re helping. You’ll get to see the direct impact of your fundraising efforts along the way, with a range of educational, health and mobility equipment provided to children, schools and organisations in local communities.
Every day, Variety receives requests for assistance from families who are doing it tough. The money you raise through the Variety Bash will directly help children who are sick, disadvantaged and who have special needs by way of goods and services.
In the last year, we’ve been able to provide $1.2 million in grants of equipment, services and scholarships throughout Queensland thanks to your fundraising. Every dollar you raise is used immediately to help Aussie kids have a fair go.
Every $1,000 you raise can help a child who is non-verbal to communicate with iPad assistive software.
Every $5,000 you raise can help a disadvantaged child follow their dreams with a scholarship in the arts, sport or education.
Every $10,000 you raise can provide wheelchair accessible vehicle modifications to help safely transport a child with special needs in their family car.

By giving practical equipment and experiences, Variety enables children to overcome the obstacles they face, and help kids be kids. But we can’t do it without you – the funds you raise will help us help QLD kids in need!
