Variety Bash rolls into Mandurah | Photos

Australia’s largest and longest running motoring event, that raises funds for children’s charity Variety, rolled into Mandurah on Saturday. 

Variety Bash started on August 18 at Optus Stadium and has since stopped in several towns throughout regional Western Australia, which included Popanyinning, Donnybrook, Bunbury, Margaret River, Kojonup and Boyup Brook. 

Locally, the unique cars decked out in bright colours visited the Ravenswood Tavern and Bendigo Bank Stadium.

Cars in the Variety Bash must be more manufactured prior to 1995 and generally follow a quirky theme. 

The route and destination of the popular seven-day rally change each year.

The first Variety Bash was held in 1985, when entrepreneur Dick Smith gathered a group of friends and travelled through New South Wales and Queensland. 

Now, it’s become an annual tradition. 

Variety helps give a fair go to kids who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs. 

By giving practical equipment and experiences, Variety enables children to overcome the obstacles they face.
