Bay to Birdwood 2023

A fixture on the South Australian events calendar since 1980, a parade of more than 1500 historic vehicles is set to wind past around 90,000 spectators along the streets of Adelaide and the Adelaide Hills to view the annual spectacle.
The iconic day out sees thousands of South Australians of all ages (and car enthusiasts from around the country) line the 67-kilometre route to view the historic motoring parade from West Beach through to the National Motor Museum at Birdwood in the Adelaide Hills.
Held annually, the Bay to Birdwood is a historic motoring event that draws participants from around Australia and the world.

Entrants and Finish Festival attendees are encouraged to wear period clothing – as is tradition at the Bay to Birdwood – to watch the parade wind its way from Anzac Highway up Greenhill, Fullarton and North East roads through the townships of Tea Tree Gully, Inglewood, Gumeracha and on to Birdwood.

At the Finish Festival, expect quality regional Adelaide Hills produce, and delicious gourmet street food served by local food trucks. Tickets for the Finish Festival are available for pre-purchase via
