Old School Vehicles at Variety Bash Departure
Bashers depart on August 2 from Twin Willows Hotel, Bass Hill
Make your way to Bass Hill on Sunday 2 August and watch a convoy of 100 Bash pre-1976 vehicles depart for the 2015 Variety Dick Smith Bash, Bass Hill to Bunbury.
You can watch this colourful event for free and you'll see 300 kooky bashers get behind the wheel of their zany vintage vehicles from 7.30am. They take off at 8.30am but not before they meet and greet everyone as well as present a Sunshine Coach and specially modified tricycles for George Bass School.
Bashers are givers and will be giving on behalf of Variety Children's Charity as they travel on this adventure of 4,598km and touch the lives of disadvantaged and special-needs children in many remote towns and communities along the way.
This year's bashers include Country music legend John Williamson. New and experienced bashers will travel for ten days across four states.
In a bash first, Aboriginal Elders have granted permission for bashers to travel on the old Nullarbor Track from Yalata to Eucla to deliver play equipment to the children of the Yalata Community.
Last year's bash raised $2.2 million, which through Variety has assisted thousands of Aussie kids in need.
So, how about giving these generous folk a big send off on Sunday August 2? Bring the whole family, meet some wonderful characters and see some unique, vintage vehicles.
