This year marked the 32nd anniversary of the Variety Bash in South Australia. For the first time in the event’s history, the Bash was postponed and, due to COVID-19 restrictions, was replaced with a shorter event that travelled within the South Australian borders from 7 – 12 November.

The ‘KI to the Capital’ event, sponsored by Tim Adams Wines /Mr Mick, will saw around 300 crazily costumed entrants and 100 colourful vehicles start in Kingscote, Kangaroo Island and, over five fun-filled days, make its way through Robe, Mt Gambier and Loxton to finish in Glenelg.

The event raised $1.5 million (net) for children in need and brought much needed economic benefit to regional areas of South Australia through supplies, meals and accommodation.

Variety Bash entrants saw their fundraising efforts first hand over the five-day event, with grants totalling $290, 673 presented along the route, including $50K from Bendigo Bank funded by the generous donors of the South Australian Bushfire Appeal.
