Welcome to The Townsville Billy Cart Dash for Variety

About Us

What's it all about?

The 2017 Townsville Billy Cart Dash for Variety will be held on Sunday, June 25, 2017.

The sixth annual charity fundraising event will again be held at Jezzine Barracks, Kissing Point in North Ward.

Teams pay a small registration fee to participate, with all fundraising donated to Variety – the Children’s Charity of Queensland, a national non-profit organisation supporting kids who are sick, disadvantaged or who have special needs.

 Dozens of Townsville businesses generously donate their time and services to help make this event happen every year, and more than $50,000 has been raised to date from team registration fees and the supportive Townsville community which goes directly to Variety.   


How can you get involved?

By entering a team for this year's event!

It's as simple as getting in touch with us for an entry form, then start building your cart!

All the cart specs and race rules are here on the website - check 'em out before you start building.

We have races in a range of age categories to cater for littlies up to the grown-ups who are still big kids at heart, with trophies and medallions in each age category for fastest cart, best decorated cart and best team spirit.

The event is open to everybody – kids, adults, families, schools, corporate, defence and sporting club teams.

Entries close June 11, 2017 ...  and  this year we are offering an early bird discount if teams enter and pay by May 25.

* Celebrity Race
