The Queensland Government, with the support of the Council of the City of Gold Coast, coordinates the comprehensive safety and support services program for Gold Coast Schoolies, making Schoolies as safe as possible for you and the Community.

In 2015, Gold Coast Schoolies will be held from Saturday 21 November to Friday 27 November.

If you are a 2015 Year 12 school leaver heading to the Gold Coast for Schoolies you will need an official Schoolies wristband to access the Schoolies Hub and the range of support services in place to help keep schoolies safe.
