Frequently Asked Questions


Is there a cost for spectators?

For folks not entering a vehicle in the event, entry tickets for the Finish at the National Motor Museum are available at the main gate and children (under 15 years) are free of charge. Entry tickets include access to the Museum where over four hundred significant historic vehicles are on display. 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 Museum.

If I am driving to Birdwood on Sunday (as a 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. Parents are encouraged to bring their children and enjoy a wonderful day out at the National Motor Museum in the glorious Adelaide Hills. The Finish event includes children’s entertainment and FREE entry for those under fifteen years of age.

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!
