With Schoolies week coming up in less than 2 months, now is the perfect time to figure out exactly what you’re going to do to celebrate the 12 long years you’ve spent in school. Over the years, the Gold Coast has always been the home to Australia’s biggest and most fabulous schoolies celebration.
In previous years, Schoolies Gold Coast has seen thousands of school leavers having fun and partying all night long and often with the aid of alcohol which has given Schoolies Gold Coast a bad reputation. However, it seems that this trend has changed.
In a recent article published by news.com.au that looked at ‘Seven trends for Schoolies Week trips in 2014’, Unleashed Travel CEO Jot Lynas, listed ‘Activities will trump alcohol’ as his #1 travel trend. Students are now putting a lot of more thought into their Schoolies week celebrations and for many of them, partying and drinking on the beach is simply no longer their top choice. According to the research conducted by his team, a huge percentage of students are now looking for more sophisticated sojourn rather than the former partying all night.
Jot Lynas added that schoolies trips are now evolving into higher-quality experiences as more and more students are focusing on doing meaningful and recreational activities such as water sports. Others are considering overseas volunteer work with local cultures. Meanwhile, others are showing increasing interest in indulging in spa retreats. After 12 years of school and with the stresses of HSC behind them, many students – particularly girls, are looking for luxury over partying.
Schoolies Gold Coast
A separate article from news.com.au has recently stated a growing number of parents would rather send their kids overseas to celebrate the end of school than to visit the Gold Coast, but when it comes to Schoolies week, Schoolies Gold Coast still comes up trumps for end of year celebrations for students around Australia.
Whether you’re looking to let loose, participate in water sports activities, or have a relaxing spa experience, you can find all these activities and many more on the Gold Coast which is why, in my opinion, it remains to be the best destination for Schoolies Week!

The Gold Coast, particularly Surfers Paradise puts on a “supervised” party that you’ll remember for the rest of your life. Schoolies Gold Coast is known to host a variety of concerts and events during Schoolies week to provide quality entertainment to school leavers who are coming from all points of Australia. This year the beach concerts will feature big acts like Illy, Stafford Brothers, The Twins, Bombs Away and Some Blonde DJ. Party all night, get a little crazy and celebrate the fact that you’ve finally finished your high school education.
If you’d rather focus on recreational activities, the Gold Coast can offer you a long list of great things to do. Being home to some of Australia’s great surfing beaches, you may try surfing with your friends and get that natural high. You can also rent a bike to explore the whole coast, trek the hinterland, try mountain climbing, or simply play beach volleyball with your mates.
