What Is Schoolies?
After a hard year's work, Year 12 students have every right to party. The best way to do this is by attending Schoolies, a three-week graduation festival for high school students in Australia.
For Year 12 students, Schoolies is the ultimate party to kick off summer holidays where you can surf, swim and have fun with friends and classmates.
Schoolies features different parties for all ages. It doesn't matter whether you are 18 or under 18, this event has got it covered. School leavers can get access to some of the most happening parties at the biggest clubs on the Gold Coast where you can hang out and dance with their friends without having to think about homework.
You can also mingle with other Year 12 students from across Australia as schoolies attract thousands of school leaves not only from the Gold Coast, but from cities like Sydney, Melbourne and Perth, and sometimes, even from New Zealand. This gives you the chance to meet new and interesting people outside of your usual circle.
Students planning to attend the most awesome party of the year can choose from various schoolies accommodation. While the Gold Coast is home to the largest post-graduation celebration, you can also choose to book accommodation at alternative locations like the Palm Cove and Airlie Beach.
Schoolies accommodation ranges from cheap to expensive and most schoolies share apartments with friends to cut cost and have more money to spend on the holiday.
