Gold Coast Schoolies 2017



The Gold Coast is home to the nation’s largest schoolies celebration however there are alternative destinations to choose from including Byron Bay, Sunshine Coast, Airlie Beach and Lorne. Traditionally each of the three weeks of Schoolies in Queensland attracts a different state of year 12’s so that each one parties with their own fellow students. Normally Queensland Year 12 graduates are the first to celebrate.

Each year thousands of Year 12 students descend on Schoolies destinations to celebrate the end of their school years and enjoy what is also the ultimate summer holiday. Students make the journey from around Australia (and New Zealand and other countries) and for many it is their first holiday without their family, with their youth creating special needs. offers a range of destinations and a choice of 3 ‘weeks’ to suit those looking to mark the end of year 12 by partying hard as well as those looking for a quieter more relaxing celebration. Most stays are for 7 nights (unless otherwise stated). Please note that inclusion on does not suggest that schoolies specific/all ages activities or entertainment will be available at a destination or on all featured dates.
