Gold Coast

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 2019, Gold Coast Schoolies will be held from Saturday 16 November to Friday 22 November.

If you are a 2019 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.

To stay up to date on Gold Coast Schoolies, follow SchooliesGC on Facebook and Schoolies Info for Parents on Facebook.
