The Variety Bash has become an annual tradition for the Mitchell family. The Bash hosts a large contingent of vintage, themed cars on a drive through regional areas of Australia, raising money for Variety: The Children’s Charity. This year, participants will drive more than 3700km from Berowra to Bowen, from the 21-30 August.

Each year, Team Scooby Doo works tirelessly to ensure The Mystery Machine is ready to embark on the journey to visit disabled and disadvantaged children in small, country towns. Their preparation for the 2016 Bash has not been easy, as Norm and Mathew Mitchell faced multiple mechanical setbacks with their car.
