Schoolies, when it started, used to be thousands, then tens of thousands of teens invading the Gold Coast and having a rip roaring time in sunny south-east Queensland. Now Schoolies are everywhere. In fact many Schoolies today hop across the ditch and party in Queenstown, New Zealand. And why not? This relatively small Kiwi town is a mecca for tourists offering, wait for it, more than 200 adventures for tourists. Now with so many activities on your doorstep, that only leaves the nights for partying.
Queenstown has an international airport and has direct flights from several Australian cities. Getting there is easy. The tough part of your Schoolies week is deciding just what you’ll have time to tackle.
