When is the Schoolies Hub on?

    The Schoolies Hub is on nightly between 7pm and midnight from Saturday 20 – Friday 26 November 2021.

    The Schoolies Hub is a fenced, alcohol and drug-free entertainment precinct on the beach that is open every night from 7pm. It offers six nights of live DJ entertainment across two stages and one night of alternative programming providing a more chilled out and relaxed environment (Tuesday 23 November) to enjoy with your friends.

    The best part of all is that it’s FREE to attend – you just need your official Safer Schoolies wristband to gain entry. Register for your FREE Safer Schoolies wristband via our wristband registration page today.

    The Schoolies Hub is for genuine 2021 Year 12 school leavers only. To gain entry, you must be wearing an official 2021 Safer Schoolies wristband.

    I graduated last year and didn't go to Schoolies because of COVID. Is Schoolies combined this year and can I come and celebrate in the Schoolies Hub?

    No.

    Access to the Schoolies Hub is for 2021 Year 12 graduates only. Safer Schoolies wristbands (for nightly access to the Schoolies Hub on Surfers Paradise beach) will only be given to genuine 2021 Year 12 school leavers.

    Is it true the beach party (Schoolies Hub) has been moved up to the Spit?

    No.

    The Schoolies Hub remains on the beach at Surfers Paradise - right at the end of Cavill Mall (check out our Safer Schoolies map).

    The Schoolies Hub is the only true beach party and is open every night from 7pm and is completely FREE for legitimate 2021 Year 12 school leavers.

    Access to the Schoolies Hub is not linked to accommodation bookings. You do not need to purchase anything. Access is 100% FREE. All you need to do is register for your FREE Schoolies Hub wristband via our Wristband registration page.

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

    If you are staying on the Gold Coast during 20-26 November 2021, 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 26 November 2021, 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 into 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 2021 Safer Schoolies wristband from the Wristband Centre - this can be worn into the Schoolies Hub. As there are no cloakroom facilities available, we strongly suggest you leave your bags and valuable items at home.

    Can I go to the Schoolies Hub in 'Week 2'?

    No. The free Schoolies Hub is only activated during the peak Schoolies period (20 - 26 November 2021). If you are visiting the Gold Coast after 26 November 2021, please refer any enquiries to your booking agent or entertainment provider.
