Important information for young people planning to celebrate Schoolies in Airlie Beach.
We are working with local community organisations and emergency services in order to ensure on the ground support is provided in line with current health advice and best practises in keeping young people and the community safe.
It is important to remember that there is no ‘organiser’ of Schoolies and no ‘Schoolies Festival’. ‘Schoolies’ occurs whenever and wherever groups of young people choose to gather to celebrate the end of their schooling.
In regard to entertainment, please refer any enquiries to your booking agent or entertainment provider.
Regardless of where or how you choose to celebrate Schoolies, always research where you are going to see if there are any support services in the area.
