One of the world’s great historic motoring events held here in Adelaide.

The iconic Bay to Birdwood is one of the world’s great historic motoring events and has been a standout fixture on the South Australian events calendar since 1980.

Thousands of spectators line the 67 kilometre route to view the passing parade of historic motoring from West Beach through to the National Motor Museum at Birdwood in the Adelaide Hills. Held annually, the Bay to Birdwood is a citizen-collector historic motoring event that draws participants from around Australia and the world to celebrate all things vintage vehicles.

In 2023, they will look to welcome over 1500 vehicles manufactured from all eras from the early 1900s through to 31 December 1993.  Entrants, spectators and Finish Festival goers are encouraged to wear period clothing as is the tradition at the Bay to Birdwood.

A stunning e-converted 1973 Land Rover Series III EV was on show at the 2022 launch event (pictured above). Provided by Jaunt Motors, the vehicle is an excellent example of the vehicles welcomed into the Bay to Birdwood.

Period clothing is a feature of the Bay to Birdwood, many participants match the era of their vehicles with their attire. The crowd is also encouraged to join in the fun of dressing up, adding to the spirit of the day.
