Enjoy the Cooly Rocks Festival
Head back in time (not literally of course) at Cooly Rocks On. The festival celebrates the era of the 50s and 60s, bringing back the music, clothing, cars and culture of the famous era. Pick up a gift at the market stalls and dig into vintage foods and the flavours of years ago. With two weeks to experience the festival, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t go back more than once.
Welcome to Cooly Rocks On 2015, the biggest 50s and 60s nostalgia festival in Australia! Over 2 kilometres of Rock 'n roll, Rockabilly, Swing music and over 1,000 hot rods, custom cars and classic vehicles lining the stunning beachfront of Coolangatta and Tweed Heads all over two huge weeks from 29 May to 8 June.
The festival is held over the Tweed Heads, New South Wales and Coolangatta, Queensland border spanning from Wharf Street in Tweed Heads to Kirra Point in Queensland. Browse through over 100 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. Music fills the venues, more retro cars roll up each day and the festival builds and builds, culminating in a Grand Finale weekend where the streets are closed down, the outdoor stages are moved in and the streets come alive with street parades, shows, displays, competitions and over 1,000 cars parading from Kirra to Tweed Heads each evening. Don't miss this very popular annual event as an entrant or a spectator, it's a blast from the past in the most spectacular way.
The Cooly Rocks Festival is just one of the many events on the Gold Coast that you can attend while staying with us at Blue Water Bay.
