"Beware of the schoolies!!!" Schoolies Week. Tip by Jez79

Schoolies Week., Gold Coast: 6 reviews and 1 photos

Schoolies Week - from mid November and into December the Gold Coast and particularly Surfers Paradise is a mass of school graduates. The main mall is filled with 17 year olds all hours of the day, and a morning walk on the beach will involve stepping over people passed out from last night's fun. If you're under 20 it can be a lot of fun, but if you don't want to share your holiday with a bunch of excited (and often drunk) school leavers, give it a miss that time of year. If you're going to be heading that way, go further down the coast to enjoy the relaxing atmosphere.
