Car Bookings

As our 2020 festival has been cancelled, we are in the process of refunding all car entrants. Entry details for the Classic Car Show ‘n’ Shine for 2021 will be communicated at a later time.  At this stage we are unable to roll over bookings for car spaces to 2021. We appreciate your patience as we firstly work through the refund process for 2020.

Cooly Rocks On Show ‘n’ Shine Car Display

Celebrating cars and culture from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s, the Classic Car Show ‘n’ Shine will be open to cars manufactured up to 1979, featuring classic cars, hot rods, motorcycles and more.

Familiarise yourself with these instructions prior to the online system opening to ensure a smooth booking process.

We recommend viewing these maps prior to the online system opening in order to familiarise yourself with the Car Zones and to choose where you would like to reserve your space in advance. Car spaces book up quickly, and car spaces have SOLD OUT in previous years, so it’s best to find a few different spaces that you would like to book in case your first choice is not available.

How to book your space

Step-by-step instructions for booking your car through the online system are available by

clicking here

General car bookings will open closer to the Festival.

Please ensure to use a desktop computer to book your tickets and use Google Chrome as your web browser.

Click Here to book Zone 1
Click Here to book Zone 2
Click Here to book Zone 3
Click Here to book Zone 4
Click Here to book Zone 5
Click Here to book Zone 6

Click onto the specific Zone map that you would like to book in.  Once you are within each Zone map you will be able to select the car space that you wish to book. If the car space has already been reserved, it will be greyed out and you will not be able to access it.

Please note that once you have clicked onto a car spot you will have 20 minutes to book and pay for the car spot. If you do not finalise your booking within the 20 minute time slot allotment, the car space will automatically go back into the pool for other people to reserve.

We highly recommend that you have your credit card details ready and on hand once the online system has been opened to reduce the risk of being timed-out mid booking.

Car spaces can only be booked through our online Eventbrite booking system, which is user friendly and very easy to navigate. Please note that no car bookings can be made in person, via email or telephone.

All bookings must be made online.

Further Information

Once you have booked your car space you will be sent a confirmation email and tickets to confirm your car booking spot.  You will need to print out and bring these tickets with you to the Festival when collecting your car packs.

You will also be sent a link to pre-order your discounted exclusive Car Entrant t-shirt  or Polo.

In May, Car Entrants will be sent an email with detailed instructions for displaying your car and a map of how to access your coloured Zone on the day.

A car pack is included for each car booked, and will include your car sticker and visor to access your specific coloured Car Zone. Please ensure to clearly display this car visor on your dashboard when entering your Zone and throughout the duration of the Festival.

Car packs will be available at the Ocean Plaza Information Marquee.

Due to road closures, cars will only be able to enter and exit their Zone daily during allocated hours of the morning and evening of Saturday and Sunday. No cars will be able to enter or exit the Zone outside these allocated time slots.

Should the weather conditions change, Entrants will be advised and communicated with by the Zone Manager as to the contingency plans. This information will also be provided in your Car Pack.

Terms and conditions apply to all car entrant bookings.
