Schoolies aged 16 to 18 who are completing year 12 on the year of travel may attend. If you have left school early (eg Year 10) for work or TAFE and you are in this age group then you may also attend. The Schoolies accommodation, parties and activities are accessible to all Schoolies 18+ as well as under 18.
The great thing about Schoolies in Vanuatu is that Schoolies who are under 18 don’t miss out on anything! The Official Schoolies parties and events are at the Schoolies Hotel as well as the local nightclubs (just for Schoolies). Those who are under 18 are not treated any differently to those who are 18, so no one is separated. After all, you have all finished year 12 at the same time and deserve to be treated equally. Having the Sure Thing Schoolies wristband means that no one misses out.

Several measures are in place to make it as safe as possible for Schoolies and the event has a 100% Safety record in all 14 years that it has been running. As a nation, Vanuatu is one of the safest places in the world, with a superior safety rating to Australia. Crime, drugs and theft are all non-existent on this friendly island – which makes it no surprise that Vanuatu has been awarded the title “The Happiest Place on Earth”. It’s the perfect island for Schoolies just off the coast of Australia in a country where hotels, shops and bars are run primarily by Australians, New Zealanders and French. Unlike other destinations, in Vanuatu safety is a natural component of this island destination. 24 hour security is on-site for extra peace of mind and Schoolies reps are at the venue to assist.
