Schoolies Hub

When is the Schoolies Hub on?

The Schoolies Hub is on nightly between 7pm and midnight from Saturday 16 – Friday 22 November, 2019. The Schoolies Hub is a fenced, alcohol and drug-free zone on the beach in Surfers Paradise providing nightly DJ entertainment and a Chill Out Night on Tuesday 19 November. The Schoolies Hub can only be accessed by genuine 2019 Year 12 school leavers wearing an official Safer Schoolies wristband.

How do I get access to the Schoolies Hub?

The Schoolies Hub is for genuine Year 12 school leavers only. To gain entry, you must be wearing an official Safer Schoolies wristband.

I’m staying at our family apartment in Surfers, can I access the Schoolies Hub?

If you are staying on the Gold Coast during 16-22 November 2019, you will be able to access the Schoolies Hub if you have an official Safer Schoolies wristband (please refer to the conditions of obtaining a wristband). If you are staying on the Gold Coast after the 22 November, 2019, you will need to direct all enquiries to your booking agent or beach party providers.

During Schoolies, there are other parties and events being held but these are separate to the Safer Schoolies Gold Coast Response and run by commercial providers. You will need to contact them for further information about ticket sales.

Can I take a bag in to the Schoolies Hub?

No. For the safety of all schoolies, no bags are allowed inside the Schoolies Hub. Grab a clear plastic pouch when you get your official 2019 Safer Schoolies wristband from the Wristband Centre - this can be worn in to the Schoolies Hub. As there are no cloak room facilities available, we strongly suggest you leave your bags and valuable items at home.

Lockers are located on The Esplanade across from the Schoolies Hub entry however, these are limited and are managed by a third party.

Can I go to the Schoolies Hub in ‘Week 2’?

No. The free Schoolies Hub is only activated during the peak Schoolies period (16 – 22 November 2019). If you are visiting the Gold Coast after the 22 November 2019, please refer any enquiries to your booking agent or entertainment provider.
