Q) What should I look out for with a schoolies hotel?
A) At Airlie Beach, location is very important, so ensure you are where the action is. It is also a huge benefit to be amongst other schoolies – the last thing you want is to be at a hotel with young kids taking up the pool, and elderly people asking you to keep the noise down after 8 pm. Schoolies hotels are set up especially for the enjoyment of schoolies… you’re here celebrating the end of high school after all!

A) Each group will get their room allocation, however, we don’t select your configuration, you can decide this amongst your group on arrival.
