Birdwood is a small, attractive town in the Adelaide Hills and on the banks of the River Torrens which achieved importance as a major attraction when the Blumberg Flour Mill was converted into the National Motor Museum. Today it is a pleasant place to stop, have a meal, explore the charming old buildings and soak up the ambience of a quiet area removed from suburban Adelaide.
