For over 30 years Civic Park, in front of the Library, has hosted a large number of spectators, plus the odd car club or two on the last Sunday of September for the annual Bay to Birdwood. This year’s event is The Bay to Birdwood Classic, open to vehicles built between 1956 and 1977 and will be held on Sunday September 29th.
Alas, this year the route has changed significantly and will no longer travel along Northeast road to Birdwood, but will follow a less congested route up the South Eastern freeway and through the Adelaide Hills towns of Balhannah, Woodside and Charleston. The route map is available here. You can also head up to Birdwood to take in the sights and music of the era as the entrants are on display for most of the day.
So if you traditionally snag a spot along the old Northeast Road route, make plans to set up your chairs and the barbie on the Adelaide Hills road for what looks to be another spectacular event.
If you’re an entrant and need that last minute bit of mechanic help, you can check out our massive range of workshop manuals and automobile books!
