With exhaust fumes and cheers in the air, the first-ever Rockynats Car Festival roared, revved and ripped into the Beef Capital.
- Organisers says the Rockynats festival features Australia’s biggest car parade
- The long-weekend event will inject an estimated $20 million into the local economy
- 35,000 car lovers cruise in from across the country
The three-day event started with a bang on Good Friday with what organisers claimed as the biggest car parade in Australian history.
More than 1,000 cars and motorbikes crowded the Rockhampton CBD in a display of the classic old and the shiny new.
Organisers and local officials said they were expecting 35,000 visitors for the weekend, injecting $20 million into the local economy.
For Robert Berry it’s a chance to show off his prized 1934 five-door Ford Coupe.
