CARS, CAMARADERIE AND CHARACTERS
Here’s the mechanics: spend the year fundraising, take one week, 70+ cars, some characters, bind it with camaraderie, fill it with laughter and serve it up on some of the most spectacular routes in Outback Australia. esCarpade is a ‘party with a purpose’, one of the best parts of this event - every dollar you raise and every kilometre you drive supports Aussie kids who are impacted by cancer.

29 Year History

“The most fun you can have in 7 days with people who just live life to the fullest and give without any expectations. The smiles you get from the people and children at the schools make all the dirt and dust worthwhile.”
Marcus & Margaret Hughes, Car 351, Mario and Luigi
“An outback adventure with our esCarpade family that gets together once a year to celebrate 12 months of car preparation and fundraising for such a worthy cause.”
"esCarpade, We do it for the kids
We wouldn't miss one for quids,
Knowing we help warm the heart,
That's why we take part"
Nigel and Cathy Wratten, Car 215, Minnie Mouse
“Just the most fantastic rewarding experience with great comradery.”
