17th September, 2013

In a trial designed to alleviate traffic congestion for entrants, the organisers of the Bay to Birdwood have changed the tradition route and will take this year’s motoring event up the Freeway.

Now in its 33rd year of operation, the Bay to Birdwood will take place in Adelaide on Sunday 29th September 2013.

Although nowhere near the size of the Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit, USA, the Bay to Birdwood is one of the largest 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.

The location of the Finish event is also unchanged with celebrations remaining at the National Motor Museum, Birdwood.

The Bay to Birdwood is more than a motoring event. Instead, it is a grand celebration of fashion, culture, family life and a retrospective of automotive design through the ages.

The Bay to Birdwood celebrates the colour, excitement and nostaglia of these moments and encourages all entants, 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 Foundation (FMCF).

With up to 1,800 vehicles expected to participate, owners are expected from right across the nation.

This year, up to 5,000 people are expected to attend the Start at Adelaide Shores (Barratt Reserve West Beach), 70,000 spectators are expected line the streets along the new route to watch the rolling cavalcade pass them by and some 10,000 will enjoy fashion, entertainment, regional produce and children’s activities at the finish event at the National Motor Museum at Birdwood.
