Travel Theme : Colourful

It is almost 6 years since I spent a winter on the Goldcoast, so that means I have missed the “Winter Sun Festival” one of the most colourful festivals on the Goldcoast, held the first weekend in June every year . It is now called “Cooly Rocks On Festival

It is a real nostalgia trip back to the 50’s and 60’s. The rock n roll era, days of the huge, extravagant American cars, Elvis Presley was King and the skirts and hair styles were big and bouffant.

It is all here, the music, rock n rolling in the street and the cars, hundreds of them. A rev heads paradise.

Let’s go cruising…
