National Motor Museum

What's big and beautiful and goes brum brum? The world-renowned National Motor Museum at Birdwood.

Set in a beautiful complex by the River Torrens in Adelaide's picturesque hills, 50 kilometres from Adelaide, the Museum houses Australia's most important collection of vintage, veteran and classic motorcars and motor cycles - more than 300 in fact.

But the National Motor Museum is much more than a collection of vehicles - it is a treasure house full of stories about people, their memories, journeys and achievements.

The Museum hosts special events each year including the Bay to Birdwood Run, The Bay to Birdwood Classic and the Rock 'n Roll Rendezvous. Special club runs and events are also held throughout the year, taking advantage of the picturesque grounds and barbecue facilities.

Group bookings are welcome, and it's a fantastic venue for functions, including birthday parties, weddings and corporate training days.
