This unique holiday provides the opportunity to find out what your 4WD was designed to do, while turning your off-road fantasies into realities.
The Variety 4WD Adventure was the brainchild of Variety, the children's charity, to create a real adventure for like minded 4WD owners with the feel good benefit of raising much needed funds for kids in need. This year, the Variety 4WD Adventure will take place over six days, from November 6-11, 2011, and will cover 1615 kilometres. The Adventure is a "Rocks to Riches" experience, travelling from South West Rocks in NSW to Dorrigo, with overnight stays in Grafton, Tenterfield, Toowoomba, Kingaroy and finishing up at Noosa Heads in Queensland.
Coming into its sixth year in 2011, the Variety 4WD Charity Adventure promises a true adventure from the comfort of your car complete with beach runs, bush trails, creek crossings, fabulous scenery, exceptional food and wine, resort-style accommodation and a unique opportunity to form new friendships. Dubbed a 'turnkey' event - meaning turn up, start and everything is done for you - Variety's 4WD Adventures are ideal for 4WD owners who are not confident to undertake an unassisted off-road drive on their own.
Variety's Motoring Events Manager, Stuart Telfer says, "The Variety 4WD Adventure is a perfect holiday for couples as it offers a perfect balance of real life adventure with resort style accommodation and fine dining so participants don't have to rough it. Plus the time on the road together gives couples a real chance to reconnect, away from the stresses of their busy lives."
What is unique about the adventure is that participants are able to fundraise part of the cost of the holiday. The all inclusive cost of $6850 for two people includes a $3000 fully tax deductible donation to Variety, used to purchase urgently needed equipment for Australia's special needs children. The all inclusive cost includes all accommodation, official meals, entertainment, merchandise, "happy hour" gatherings and assistance from Variety's skilled team of event officials including 4WD experts and mechanical support personnel. Participants are encouraged to begin fundraising in advance of the Adventure and get their family, friends and work colleagues involved.
The children's charity, Variety is dedicated to transforming the lives of children with special needs. Unlike most other charitable organisations which focus on a single problem, Variety knows no boundaries and supports children suffering from 74 different conditions. They also set themselves apart from many other charities in that a full 90 cents of every dollar donated goes directly to help kids in need. During Variety's vibrant 35 year history in Australia, it has granted over $160 million in specialised medical equipment and services to individual children, children's medical facilities, children's emergency transport services, schools and support organisations.
