Destination - Gold Coast

Surfers Paradise, QLD

Boasting kilometres of golden sandy beaches, a warm year-round climate and an endless list of stylish resorts and beachside accommodation, it's no wonder thousands of school leavers make the journey to the Gold Coast each year to take part in the nation's largest Schoolies celebration.

At the heart of the Gold Coast lies Surfers Paradise, where the spirit of Schoolies was born. Each year Surfers Paradise's famous Cavill Avenue, Esplanade and Surfers Paradise main beach comes alive with entertainment for all to enjoy.

There's an abundance of entertainment options on offer both day and night in Surfers Paradise. Head to the beach for a surf or to simply chill out or explore the streets offering a plethora of eateries, boutiques and beachfront markets.

There is also an endless list of clubs and bars nestled amongst Schoolies accommodation to party the night away!

Venturing just outside of Surfers Paradise but still within close proximity of all the Schoolies action is accommodation in Broadbeach and Main Beach.

In Broadbeach you will find the latest fashion at the Gold Coast's largest shopping centre, Pacific Fair as well as Broadbeach Mall only a short stroll from Kurrawa Beach.

In Main Beach the village atmosphere of Tedder Avenue with its scattering of boutique shops and eateries is a must-see, as is the uncrowded stretch of beach.

And if thrill seeking is on your list of things to do, don't forget to check out the Gold Coast's constantly evolving world famous theme parks!
