Saturday Night cruising returns to Cooly Rocks On

Yesteryear rolled back into Coolangatta for Cooly Rocks On with the long-awaited return of the beloved Saturday Night Car Cruise.

The sold-out event saw 250 classics, hot rods, muscle cars and more cruise through the streets of the iconic beachside destination, much to the thrill of onlookers.

“We were stoked to successfully bring back the car cruise this year and give enthusiasts another opportunity to show off their pride and joy,” said Major Events Gold Coast Director of Festivals and Events Mark Duckworth.

The highly anticipated Cooly Rocks On Show ‘N’ Shine again proved why it’s an annual drawcard for car enthusiasts from all over the country with almost 900 vehicles on display stretching for two kilometres.

“I am a car head, and this was on the bucket list, I had to get up here from Victoria to have a look. Booking for next year!” – Scott, Car Enthusiast.

The Gold Coast turned on its famous winter sunshine for the tens of thousands of fans who donned their best vintage threads and up dos to take a trip down memory lane over five action-packed days.

“Last year we had record crowds of more than 136,000 and this year felt just as busy if not bigger,” said Mark. People come for the music, the entertainment and of course for the cars, and the attention to detail in the fashion, the Show ‘N’ Shine, it’s what makes this festival such a unique experience that people want to come back for year after year.”

Cooly Rocks On welcomed acts from around Australia and the world, including the artist known as the best Elvis Tribute Artist in the world Shawn Klush (USA), Swedish rockabilly trio The Go Getters and Japan’s master of Samurai rock ‘n’ roll Johnny Pandora just to name a few.

New Zealand’s Che Orton took out the prestigious Cooly Rocks On Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Contest for 2023 and will now represent the festival at Elvis Week in Memphis, USA later this year.

“Just so happy and proud to be able to represent Cooly Rocks On and Australia in Memphis this August. It’s a dream come true to be able to go back to Graceland.”  – Che Orton, Cooly Rocks On UETA Contest winner.

Brisbane’s Sim Lovett, who grew up in Hong Kong and goes by the name Bunny Boulevard, was crowned this year’s Pin-up Pageant winner.

“The Cooly Rocks On Pin-Up Pageant is the epitome for us girls, it’s not all about winning but about enjoying the process amongst our tight knit and supportive community,” – Sim Lovett, Cooly Rocks On Pin-up Pageant winner.

Lovers of nostalgia filled the streets, restaurants and hotels bringing a welcome boost for the local economy. Accommodation houses reported they were fully booked over the festival and were already three quarters full for next year’s Cooly Rocks On. Restaurants, bars and cafés said they had a bumper five days.

Festival goers were just as ready to dig deep to support the official Charity Partner for Cooly Rocks On, MND and Me Foundation for a chance to win a 1954 Chevrolet Hot Rod Pick Up Truck.

Affectionately known as ‘Daphne’ the bright orange beauty has been restored to its vintage look and feel complete with a brand new V8 engine. More than $50,000 worth of tickets were sold across the festival with all proceeds going directly to Motor Neurone Disease research.

Cooly Rocks On welcomes 2023 Sponsor Family

Cooly Rocks On has kicked into gear with Australia’s much-loved nostalgia festival set to take Coolangatta back in time from Wednesday 7 June.

Last year the festival welcomed record crowds who had made the pilgrimage to the Gold Coast to enjoy the motors, music and lifestyle of yesteryear over five jam-packed days. Now it is time to do it all over again with an even more exciting program of international acts and plenty of music, fashion, and classic cars.

Joining us for the ride in 2023 are some familiar friends in our Sponsor Family and we look forward to welcoming some new Cooly Rocks On partners.

As we prepare to start our engines, we want to send a huge welcome to our 2023 Cooly Rocks On Sponsor Family. See you all in Coolangatta for five days of cars, music and fashion.

Rise in alternative investments – classic cars soar in value

Now the third highest performing luxury investment category, with a 190% return*, the classic car market is experiencing a boom as alternative investments – along with coins and whisky – are on the rise.

Shannons Auctions holds four major auctions a year, with over 650 vehicles on offer and has seen a 15% jump in volume from last year.

National auctions & external relations manager, Christophe Boribon, says collector vehicles have soared in value because they’re considered by many as a tangible asset.

“They are something you can actually use, be enjoyed with family and friends and open you up to a community of like-minded vehicle enthusiasts. You can’t do that with shares,” said Mr Boribon.

“There’s also been a new wave of interest in the classics,” he added.

“Recently a cherry red 1997 Porsche 911 (993) Carrera S Coupe sold for $303,000. Built-in limited numbers with worldwide production reaching just 3,714 units, it is one of the rarer 993 models.”

“These cars have become hugely collectible in recent years growing in value by more than 7.5% each year since being launched in 1994.”

“We have seen a number of Australians redirecting the cash they might have spent on overseas trips into the cars market.”

Mark Duckworth, the director of festivals and events at Major Events Gold Coast, which is behind one of the largest classic car gatherings in the country, Cooly Rocks On, agreed.

“Classic cars really maintain their value, or even rise in value over time. In 1969 you could buy a brand-new Dodge Charger Daytona for less than $5,000. This exact car is now worth close to $100,000,” says Mr Duckworth.

“These vehicles quickly become even more valuable if there were only a limited number of that particular model car made, or if the company has shut down,” he adds.

“It’s also often about the memory and attachment to a certain timepiece and era. It could be a motor vehicle or a comic book – people like to capture a memory and hang onto it.”

Shannons Insurance arm is also seeing the strong appetite for classic cars remain steady, particularly some of the Aussie and American muscle varieties.

Business Development Manager Phil Ross says demand for insurance is flat out as people see cars as a safer and more enjoyable market to be involved in.

“There are plenty of car enthusiasts who see vehicles as a better investment than shares. You can’t drive your Woolies shares to Cooly Rocks On in June but you can drive your Hot Rod or Muscle car,” said Mr Ross.

Mr Boribon from Shannons Auctions, says there was the potential for classic car values to slide during the onset of Covid-19, but the opposite actually happened.

“Many experts view part of the collector market as a solid investment, the vehicles that were produced in smaller numbers, special coachwork, or high powered whether from the 1950s or on more modern classics from 2000s, many have seen great growth in recent years.”

“We’re seeing new and different types of buyers – there are the people who don’t have the time to do restorations and want something that’s restored and functional, there are the buyers with emotional attachment to a certain vehicle – but there are also people who love to tinker with their vehicles, adding value, in their garage.”

In the last two years Mr Duckworth said they have seen a big increase in the number of people attracted to classic cars with record numbers attending Cooly Rocks On, Australia’s largest nostalgia festival, held on the Gold Coast each June.

“Our fan base has really grown, there were record crowds last year,” he added.

“Australians have a wonderful connection to the music, and culture of yesteryear. Holden cars, rock’n’roll and trips to the beach remain some of the fondest memories of decades gone by.”

The event attracts nearly 1000 participating classic, hot rod and muscle cars. While the Show ‘N’ Shine display, spanning nearly two kilometres, attracts car enthusiasts from across the country and from overseas.

“It’s amazing to see so many beautiful cars in one space, the attention to detail and the story from the owners makes it so special. From Go Go Mobiles to Mustangs and everything in-between it’s one of the country’s biggest showcases of classic cars.”

“The feeling you get from driving a car can take you back to a certain time in your life. It talks to so many different people about a time of innocence – family holidays during the 1960s, reminding us of simpler times.”

Some of the highest-earning classic cars include:

  • Flash and fun: Built in limited numbers with worldwide production reaching just 3,714 units making the cherry red 1997 Porsche 911 (993) Carrera S Coupe one of the rarest 993 models. Sold late last year for $303,000.
  • Classic Australian models: Even the traditional Holden Kingswood can fetch about $50,000, a Ford Cortina $70,000 and a Ford Escort around $30,000.
  • Vintage four-wheel drives: These cars still pack a punch with something like a simple 1971 Toyota Landcruiser FJ40 worth almost $120,000. The FJ40 was Toyota’s best-selling model in the US between 1961 and 1965 and it solidified the brand’s reputation for building strong, reliable vehicles.

Shannons Insurance is to be a supporting partner of Cooly Rocks On 2023.

The world’s best beach volleyball players to go head-to-head on the Gold Coast

When it comes to beach volleyball, Coolangatta’s iconic wide golden beach has become synonymous with the sport. This month Australia’s best volleyball players will go head-to-head, and take on the world’s top teams, in a showcase of skill on the sand over 10 days.

One of the jewels of the southern Gold Coast coastline, Coolangatta beach played host to the first ever Commonwealth Games beach volleyball matches in 2018, and since then has become the new home for Australia’s national beach volleyball championships.

From 24 March through to 2 April, Volleyslam 2023 Festival will take over Coolangatta beach with four separate championship events across 10 days including the Australian Beach Volleyball Championships, the Australian Youth Beach Volleyball Championships, the Australian Beach Volleyball Schools Cup, and crowd favourite – the Volleyball World Beach Pro Tour – Futures event.

Major Events Gold Coast CEO Jan McCormick said the annual Volleyslam festival celebrates the best of the best in beach volleyball with some incredible action that you definitely want to be beachside for.

“Beach volleyball is one of those exhilarating sports that you can’t help but get invested in as a spectator, to be able to see the world’s best on one of Australia’s most beautiful beaches, is a not-to-be-missed experience both for volleyball enthusiasts and for the general public,” said Ms McCormick.

In 2022, Major Events Gold Coast in partnership with Tourism and Events Queensland resigned a deal with Volleyball Australia to keep the beach volleyball events on the Gold Coast for another three years.

“Securing these premier national events for Coolangatta until at least 2025 is a major coup for the Gold Coast, both from a reputational and economic point of view for the city but also for many other reasons as we head towards the Brisbane 2032 Olympic and Paralympic Games,” said Ms McCormick.

“Hosting the Volleyball World Beach Pro Tour event in particular not only showcases our natural stadiums to a global audience of potential event organisers but also helps inspire a generation of up-and-coming local volleyball stars providing them with the opportunity to mingle with the best in the world and aspire to be on the beach competing for Gold come 2032.”

Volleyball Australia CEO Andrew Dee said it is fantastic to return to a beach that’s become synonymous with world-class beach volleyball events.

“Last year was the first time we hosted the Volleyslam festival with all four major events which was a resounding success,” Dee said. “To have the Scape Australian Youth Beach Volleyball Championships and Scape Australian Beach Schools Cup on at the same time as the Australian Championships and Volleyball World Beach Pro Tour creates an incredible opportunity for Australia’s future beach volleyball stars to learn from some of the best in the world.

“We’re excited to be back on iconic Coolangatta Beach this month to provide participation opportunities for beach volleyballers at all levels. With the Gold Coast set to host the beach volleyball competition for the 2032 Olympic Games, it provides us with a great opportunity to bring together the next generation of talent as we continue to provide opportunities to identify talent that have the potential to represent Australia on the world stage,” he said.

Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate said he is excited to see the energy, passion and excitement of this great sport back on the beaches of Coolangatta.

“It’s fantastic to see VolleySlam return to Coolangatta,” said Mayor Tom Tate. “With four separate events to be held across the festival, we can expect some fierce competition as teams strive to take home a championship trophy.

“Major Events Gold Coast and Volleyball Australia deserve applause for bringing together the country’s best beach volleyballers again in 2023. It’s showtime and it’s free for spectators so don’t miss a minute of the action.”

Volleyslam 2023 kicks off with the Australian Beach Volleyball Championships on Friday 24th March and culminates with the World Beach Pro Tour Futures event on from 29 March – 2 April.

All Volleyslam events are free to attend.

The World Beach Pro Tour Futures and Volleyslam Gold Coast is supported by Major Events Gold Coast and the Queensland Government through Tourism and Events Queensland and features on the It’s Live! in Queensland events calendar.

Cooly Rocks On unveils hugely anticipated entertainment lineup

Lovers of music, motors and the lifestyle of yesteryear are preparing for another not-to-be-missed event on the annual calendar as Australia’s largest nostalgia festival announces its much anticipated entertainment lineup.

This year’s Cooly Rocks On, to be held on the Gold Coast from 7-11 June, will feature a host of big international performers, along with Australia’s favourite rock ‘n’ roll, rockabilly and swing artists from across the country.

Arguably one of the biggest rockabilly bands in the world, Swedish group The Go Getters, will be one of the headliners of the 2023 program. The trio who formed 35 years ago is sure to keep the toes tappin’ all night as they make their first appearance in Australia in more than a decade.

Japan’s Johnny Pandora has been breaking hearts on the rock ‘n’ roll and rockabilly scene since he was 18 years old, performing nearly 200 shows a year. Now the singer, bassist, guitarist and dancer is ready to wow audiences in Coolangatta, as part of this year’s lineup.

New Zealand’s original retro rockers Boom! Boom! Deluxe are set to fill the dancefloor, playing a mix of authentic 1950s and 60s classics laced with clever re-workings of modern songs in the rock ‘n’ roll styles.

“This year’s festival is going to be bigger and better than ever with five international acts invited to perform, as well as dozens of acts from across the country filling the streets with the sound and energy we have become famous for,” said Major Events Gold Coast Director of Festivals and Events Mark Duckworth.

Fan favourites from Melbourne, The Rechords, will perform their unique blend of bluegrass western swing, hillbilly and rock ‘n’ roll.

Adelaide’s hottest seven-piece 50s swing, rhythm and roots group Lucky Seven will set the mood at the Cooly Rocks On Moonlight Swing Dance, as well as channelling the original rock ‘n’ roll genius of the legendary Bill Haley with their outfit The Lucky Comets: The Sounds Of Bill Haley.

Queensland’s own Cherry Divine, dubbed the ‘Princess of Rockabilly’, grew up listening to records on her Grandad’s gramophone. Her love for rockabilly has taken her around the world and she can’t wait to return to Cooly Rocks On.

Headlining in the Elvis Precinct this year is the USA’s Shawn Klush, who’s widely considered the best Elvis Tribute Artist in the world.

For Elvis fans, it doesn’t get much better than this,” said Mark.

Shawn tours extensively around the world performing to sold out shows, but his inaugural Cooly Rocks On appearance will be his first Down Under in five years. The team is so excited to present Shawn at the 2023 festival.”

The critically acclaimed artist was named the first-ever ‘Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist’ by Elvis Presley Enterprises in Memphis and has been described as the “closest thing to The King in concert.”

Cooly Rocks On is also bringing another renowned international Elvis Tribute Artist to the Gold Coast, with an Australian-first performance from Jimmy Holmes (USA), who has taken the industry by storm.

In an unmissable event, Jimmy Holmes and Mark Andrew will present ‘The King Returns to Stage ‘68-’72” in a nod to Elvis’ triumphant return to the live arena after waving goodbye to Hollywood.

For lovers of surf culture and classic rock ’n’ roll car songs, The Australian Beach Boys Show will bring back memories of cruising in coupes and feeling fine in a Chevrolet 409.

Other notable artists performing this year include The Pacific Belles, Issi Dye, Jake & the Cadillacs, Kenny and the Nitro Rockers, Melody Graves and the Hokum Redemption, Peaches & the Alphasonics, Swingabilly Ray and more!

Cooly Rocks On is supported by the Queensland Government, via Tourism and Events Queensland, and is a feature on the It’s Live! in Queensland events calendar.
