Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a cost for spectators?

For folks not entering a vehicle in the event, entry tickets for the Finish Event at the National Motor Museum are available at the main gate and children (under 15 years) are free of charge. Entry tickets includes access into the Museum where visitors will see over 300 hundred historic vehicles on display, some highly significant to Australia’s motoring past. For spectators, car parking can be found along the main street of Birdwood or in any number of designated car parks set up for the event. Lunch and refreshments are available from a number of caterers and picnics are encouraged. Please be advised that glass and pets are not permitted within the grounds of the National Motor Museum.

If I am driving to Birdwood on Sunday (as spectator to the National Motor Museum), what is the best Route to take?

In order to avoid the entrant traffic heading along the route we encourage spectators to travel via the South Eastern Freeway and Onkaparinga Scenic Route to Birdwood.

Is the Bay to Birdwood suitable for children?

Absolutely! Remember how you marveled at cars when you were young? This is a wonderful child friendly event and parents are encouraged to bring their children and enjoy a wonderful day out at the National Motor Museum in the glorious Adelaide Hills. It is FREE entry for children.

What do I need to bring to Birdwood on Sunday?

Spectators are encouraged to bring their camera, dress up in fashions of the era. Sunscreen is a must and although rain is unlikely, it always pays to be prepared. Most importantly, bring your friends, a healthy appetite, have fun and wear a smile!
