On the Road Again: Bay to Birdwood is back this October

Historic vehicle owners from across the nation can’t wait to get on the road again for one of the world’s great historic motoring events, the annual Bay to Birdwood.

Over 1,500 vehicles manufactured from the early 1900s until 1993 are expected to make the journey from West Beach to Birdwood this late-October. 

Registrations for the event opened in early June with half the spots booked within five days. Michael Neale, Bay to Birdwood Chair & History Trust Board member says, “This eagerness from family vehicle owners through to historic motoring enthusiasts alike demonstrates just how much Australians love this event.”

The Bay to Birdwood happens over the weekend of Saturday 21 and Sunday 22 October. The first stage, for the judging of the prestigious Bay to Birdwood Awards, takes place on Saturday in the heart of Adelaide along North Terrace. Then on Sunday, the historic vehicles parade from West Beach, along Anzac Highway, through the eastern side of the city of Adelaide, up North East Road and into the Adelaide Hills. It all finishes at the beautiful township of Birdwood, where a day of celebration for thousands of visitors unfolds.

“At the History Trust’s National Motor Museum, people can get up close to the historic vehicles from the parade, meet the owners, share stories and refresh fond memories in a great celebration on the grounds of the museum, while enjoying great food choices and entertainment,” concluded Mr Neale.
