Letter from the CEO

Welcome to Cooly Rocks On™ 2017. As the CEO of Connecting Southern Gold Coast it is my pleasure to welcome you to one of the biggest events hosted on the Southern Gold Coast. Our team has been working hard to bring a fresh, rejuvenated and, importantly, free event that delivers on all the much-loved events as well as new elements to take the festival to new heights. We hope you enjoy this year’s Cooly Rocks On™ and find time to make the most of everything our Southern Gold Coast region has to offer – from the hinterland to the coast, great coffee shops and restaurants, nature and adventure experiences and much more. Happy days!

Peter Doggett
CEO, Connecting Southern Gold Coast
