continually staged motoring event of its kind held anywhere in the world. This year is a ‘Classic’ year and is for
vehicles manufactured between 1st January 1956 and 31st December 1977.
Following detailed surveying conducted over the last two years, input from entrants and ongoing consultation with
SAPOL, this year’s Bay to Birdwood Classic will travel to Birdwood via the South Eastern Freeway.
With the Start remaining unchanged at Adelaide Shores, Barratt Reserve West Beach, the large cavalcade will make its
journey up Glen Osmond Road, Mt Barker Road and the South Eastern Freeway where it will travel to Birdwood via the
historic Hill’s townships of Verdun, Balhannah, Oakbank, Woodside, Charleston and Mt Torrens.

enthusiasts and onlookers to get into the spirit of the day and dress in period costume. In a drive to raise funds for
cancer research, the organisers are also pleased to announce their ongoing partnership with the Flinders Medical Centre
With up to 1,800 vehicles expected to participate, owners are expected from right across the nation.
