Birdwood in the northern Adelaide Hills (just under an hour's drive north-east of Adelaide city) is best known for the National Motor Museum housed in the historic mill featuring hundreds of vintage and classic vehicles. The museum tells the story of Australia's love affair with motoring through memorabilia including brochures and maps, tin signs, petrol bowsers, toys, models and photographs. The Bay to Birdwood car rally in September finishes here providing motoring enthusiasts a chance to see rare and valuable cars in action. It’s also the setting for the Rock and Roll Rendezvous in April (not taking place in 2020), celebrating the 50s, 60s and 70s through great cars, fashion and music. The Birdwood Motel with very spacious rooms is conveniently located next to the museum, while Mylkappa Cellar and Kitchen is just down the road. The town has Top of the Torrens art gallery and Treasures on Torrens for vintage wares and collectables, with dining options including a pub, bakery and café. Birdwood was initially named Blumberg by the German settlers who farmed the area in the late 1840s.
