Schoolies Week is a three-week graduation festival celebrated by Year 12 school leavers from every corner of Australia. Schoolies week celebrations takes place during the first 3 weeks following graduation starting in Mid November.
The Gold Coast is home to the nation’s largest Schoolies celebration. 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 with 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.
There are so many events being held over the duration of Schoolies Week, including a multitude of themed parties held within the clubs of Surfers Paradise and the incredible Schoolies Nation Beach Festival which is held from 6pm 10pm on November 28th and 29th 2019.
