Back in 2019 we attended our first Big Red Bash and we loved it so much we got tickets for the next year. Unfortunately COVID resulted in last years concert being cancelled, but all tickets were carried over to 2021.
For those that aren’t aware, the Big Red Bash is a 3 day concert with camping onsite, held at the base of Big Red in the Simpson Desert, just out from Birdsville, QLD. It’s the world’s most remote music festival.
But it’s more than just a music festival, it’s a means to bring much needed spending to outback Queensland communities and also helps to raise money for charities. Each year, the Big Red Bash raises over $75,000 for the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS).
One of the ways they raise money for the RFDS is via the ‘Nutbush World Record Challenge’. And guess what …….
THIS YEAR OFF THE TRACK 4×4 ARE JOINING THE WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT!
But that’s not all, this year we are also trying to beat the record for the ‘Largest Twist Dance’ as well!
In 2019, 2,330 Big Red Bashers smashed the World Record for the most people dancing the Nutbush! The current record for the Worlds Largest Twist Dance is 3,040 in the USA.
All records are adjudicated by The Australian Book of Records and every cent of our registration fee, plus all your generous donations, go to the Royal Flying Doctor’s Service to support their amazing work in the outback, ensuring everyone has access to medical aid, emergency services and other vital health care support.
Our Off The Track 4×4 team is made up of us, George & Shelly, and our mate Stewy.
Got some spare cash, want to donate to a good cause and support our team? Whether it’s $2 or $200, it all helps.
The world record attempts will take place at 9.00am, Thursday 8th July at the Big Red Bash in the concert area.
We are George & Shelly, a married couple from Sydney, Australia, who love 4WDing, camping and travelling this great country of ours. We love sharing our adventures and hope to inspire others to travel as well. Join us on our journeys around Australia!
