Trip Info

The Variety Club is a worldwide charity started in Pittsburgh USA. The New Zealand Club started in 1990, a vehicle rally for very eccentric vehicles. At that stage the vehicles needed by 1967 or older. Participants dressed these vehicles up in very bold signage. Many sirens and horns. Old fire engines were changed to spray water over the unsuspecting. All in the aid of charity.

Top NZ businessman giving up a week of their time to have immense fun whilst raising funds for NZ’s sick and needy children. The event visits many schools en route but then travels many very remote roads to let the participants have there own fun. I entered this event for 13 years with up to 3 vehicles each year. Took one old fire engine to Pittsburgh for a 6 day event there.

If you intend visiting NZ, then come spend 7 days in the region of Northland NZ. Let your hair down in a way you can’t imagine in the aid of charity

Your adventure awaits!
