The final night celebration was held in Darwin on Saturday night to announce the figure and congratulate all those involved in achieving the incredible total.

In 2016 the Variety Vic Bash traversed more than 4500 kilometres from Melbourne, travelling through the very heart of Australia. Over 250, loud and proud entrants took part in the epic trip from the bottom to the top of Australia, stopping in a huge number of iconic places along the way, such as the Flinders Ranges, Coober Pedy, Alice Springs and Katherine just to name a few.

This year the fundraisers made two stops to present special grants in Maldon and Elliot.Variety Bash Development Manager Julie Baxter said, “Our entrants spend countless hours each year raising funds for disadvantaged children, and to announce a total like this is the best way to say thank you.”
