Gold Coast Schoolies is an unforgettable week for many and the largest destination to celebrate the end of high school. About 50,000 teens swarm Gold Coast each year for a week long party in this idyllic beachside city. Combining days by the beach and cooling off in the surf and the pulsating nightlife in Cavill Avenue, there is no better place to party with your mates.
The Gold Coast is spoilt with a variety of accommodation options to meet all budgets, and all close to the action around Surfers Paradise. Apartments are a great way to go so all your friends can stay together, while camping right across from the beach is a safe, budget-friendly and incredible experience as well. You’ll be spoilt for choice at Schoolies Gold Coast but make sure you lock it in early, as it’s super popular and the hottest accommodation is snapped up early.
Aside from the usual laze by the pool, there are so many fun activities to do by day and at night on the Gold Coast.
