TIP: SCHOOLIES IS STARTING THIS WEEKEND:
Schoolies starts on the 22nd of November. Schoolies is basically when year 12 high school students complete their final exams. Many year 12’s around Australia go for one or two weeks to party, party, party. There are three major places where tens of thousands of students from all around Australia go to celebrate: Gold Coast, Bali and Byron bay. So in the next few weeks you will notice a lot of young people partying around town. There will also be increased numbers of police and very strict security at bars and pubs. Also, be prepared to wait in queues if you are going out late. If you want to know more about the schoolies, click here.
Remember to smile, have fun and congratulate any schoolies you meet- they have just finished school forever 🙂
