Cooly Rocks On was on again for 2016; and to get some clean, artistic photos of the cars and also the Gold Coast scenery, I headed out before the bulk of the crowds start to arrive on the Friday afternoon. With cars ranging from hot rods, to big American muscle cars, to the more unusual and downright weird … this car and music festival has something for everyone.

The Cooly Rocks On website describes the event as:

Over 2 kilometres of Rock ‘n Roll, Rockabilly, swing music and over 1,300 hot rods, custom cars and classic vehicles lining the stunning beachfront of Coolangatta and Tweed Heads.  Cooly Rocks On kicks off June 3rd – 13th.  Slowly building to the big weekend (11th & 12th) which sees over 1300 pre 1970 cars park up in the streets.

Browse through over 140 retro market stalls and 100 craft market stalls; take your taste buds back to the 50s and 60s with vintage styled food and join in the atmosphere that draws over 100,000 people back year after year. Peruse through speciality exhibitors featuring an assortment of products ranging from speciality car parts, motorcycle accessories and pin striping methods.
