Initially named Blumberg by the German settlers who farmed the area in the late 1840s, Birdwood is the major town in the eastern Adelaide Hills. Its most popular attraction is the National Motor Museum, which tells the history of motoring in Australia and has an excellent collection of vintage cars. The town also has a traditional Australian pub and gallery that displays work by local artists, and there are some good bushwalking and cycling trails in the area, including the Mawson Trail.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
